A question for ComcastJoe

Regarding your assistance to surfettekw in this thread, I clicked on your link to

 

 xfinity tv com/computer. 

 

The following is part of the resulting printout..

 

My operating system:Windows - Windows NT 6.0

My web browser:Explorer 7 - Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.0; Trident/4.0; SLCC1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; Media Center PC 5.0; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; .NET4.0C)

 

According the information in MY Profile, this is the information that is showing:

 

Browser used for Last VisitMozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 6.0; Trident/4.0; SLCC1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; Media Center PC 5.0; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; .NET4.0C)

 

I am in fact using IE 8 and have  been for quite some time, yet internally somewhere IE 8 is not being reflected.. 

 

I have questioned the fact that IE 7 is being reflected in one of the links in Security for "amibotted", no satisfactory answers..

 

Maybe you have one for the difference in the tv profile..

 

ciao, bj

 

p.s. no difference using or not using compatibility mode

The Comcast site should just be displaying information sent by your browser. Here's another site that does similarly:

 

http://show-ip.net/useragent/

 

What does it show on the User-Agent line?

Hi Barmar,

 

Thanks for the reply..  As they say a picture is worth a thousand words..

And FWIW, I checked my Windows History and the IE 8 installation is 5/1/2010.  I was curious with the inconsistencies being reflected by comcast..

 

ciao, bj
