OSNews, Generic OSes Ah yes, why not? The last time we did this, it was March 2011, so it's been almost a year since we offered a little insight into what kind of operating systems and browsers you, dear readers, are using. Nothing particularly earth-shattering going on here.

I assume Chromium usage is bundled with Chrome.


I don't know the details of how the UA strings are parsed by the tool they used, but as far as Chromium goes if it is a "vanilla" build it will be indistinguishable from Chrome - the UA strings are constructed identically.

However, Chromium is often packaged by 3rd parties and they do sometimes modified the UA string. Ubuntu for example adds a chromium specific identifier "Chromium/xx.xxx", which does not actually exist in vanilla builds. It still contains the "Chrome/xx.xxx" identifier though, which is what most UA detection routines would pick up on and identify it as Chrome.

I would say in all likelihood that yes, Chromium usage would be bundled with the Chrome numbers.
