AFAIK you can tweak your browser to report what you want.  I don't know how,
but I am pretty sure you can.  So unless it is a default USER_AGENT code
from a browser there is little change of identifying what the browser is.

There is a list of many USER_AGENT and their properties in the BrowsCap.ini
file many IIS machines use.  Do a search, and you should find a pretty
updated one.
