Enhance Conference and the User-Agent

Misconceptions concerning User-Agents are limiting the possibilities

Friday 4th March 2016 saw 180 web professionals all with an interest in progressive enhancement assemble in London for a one day conference organised by Simon McManus.

"The Web is the most hostile software engineering environment imaginable." - Douglas Crockford

I continue to be amazed at how the humble User-Agent is misunderstood. My purpose in writing this blog post is to reset some myths passed down from web professional to web professional over the years concerning User-Agents. This was typified in the debate and conversation I witnessed at Enhance Conference.
