    Reading web statistics

    Hi everyone,

    I've just been viewing some site statistics for some userAgents but don't understand what they mean, for example:

    Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.1)

    The above says Mozilla 4.0 but then after it, says compatible; MSIE 8.0.

    I'm not sure what this means as I thought that Mozilla was one web browser and Microsoft Internet Explorer was another. Can anyone clarify what it actually means? I've included more examples below.

    Appreciate any assistance.

    Code:
    1	3070	22.26%	Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.1; Trident/4.
    2	1520	11.02%	Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 6.0; Trident/4.

    I didn't know where else to post it. Is there another more relevant forum on sitepoint?

    I've moved the question to the general development issues forum.
