Sorry I should have been more specific. I'd like to see what you see after clicking dbug in the sidki sets icon on the google results page for "test".

May be the same as what you see at

or

Code:
Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 10.0; Windows NT 6.1; Trident/6.0)

A few seem to detect the real user-agent,

Code:
GET / HTTP/1.1
Accept: text/html, application/xhtml+xml, */*
Accept-Language: en-US
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Trident/7.0; rv:11.0) like Gecko
Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate
Proxy-Connection: Keep-Alive
Host: microsoft.com

In fact, if you just type "user-agent" in DuckDuckGo, it'll retrieve your true OS and UA.

I thought your IE string was
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64; Trident/7.0; rv:11.0) like Gecko
per http://prxbx.com/forums/showthread.php?t...7#pid17367

Regardless, if the code blocks are from the Proxomitron's log window, the sites aren't detecting the UA. The Proxomitron is sending a different UA to different sites. Windows NT 6.3 would be unexpected, however.

Understanding user-agent strings

Oh, I needed it. Read it yesterday. Wink
