OK, please someone explain to me this anomaly:

According to the user agent logs for my site, I’m disappointed to see only 0.5% of the visitors are using Opera – my primary browser. I recently downloaded Mozilla 1.0, and I’m thinking I may change my primary browser soon…

Anyway, the anomaly is this – there was no version 5 of Netscape (also known as Mozilla due to a long history of rivalry with the University of Illinois Urbana-Champlaign’s Mosaic program). There was a version 4.x and now version 6.x, yet there has been only one hit in the month of July from “Mozilla/6.xx” and 2025 from “Mozilla/5.xx” browsers. So, does this mean that the user agent tag sent with every HTTP request from Netscape 6.x and Mozilla 1.x is fictitious? Does Netscape/AOL intend to keep identifying their browser by one lower number internally than externally? Isn’t this rather confusing to the software developers?

I need a more mentally stimulating day job…
