Not really... Check out the following url for yourself
but I have no problem of dropping the change to the DEFAULT_USER_AGENT_KEYS
#define portion of this patch, though there is a lot more pertinent information
being sent than what I am suggesting be enabled here.
Anyhow, one has to always play the balancing act of protecting privacy vs
proper functionality of sites which is unfortunate... I know more than few
sites that will not function properly when the current default user agent
string is used...
