Please see UA Client Hints linked in the proposal

https://wicg.github.io/ua-client-hints/

You should still get this information, but more privacy oriented manner.






I know no one RTFAs (I usually don't even RTFA), but in this case, it's really egregious. The whole discussion is going back and forth about UA sniffing with no one mentioning that the damn proposal is entirely based on adding UA Client Hints as a replacement. It makes this whole multi-hundred comment discussion pretty much valueless. Please, other commenters: read this link before discussing whether you're caremad about "like Gecko" in the UA string!

In this case, it seems like you didn't read the discussion either. Many people have been talking about UA Client Hints here, before you commented.

This was the near top level comment I saw to mention it. I don’t think it’s crazy to collapse a huge thread where the first several levels of comments aren’t relevant.

Sure, but you could do a find before accusing all other commenters of "egregious" not reading of the article.
