That I don't doubt (you seeing it for the first time).

But you alluded to "Any UA anyone should be bothered about" and to be able to say that you must have some criteria that a UA must meet to be included in that list.

Precisely my point.

You may want to update that to FF2.0

And how do you determine that? Ask them or browser detection? Think about that one.

The latter should be the first one on your list if you are trying to please the people signing the check.
Comprehensive list? Any browser/UA that will support what you are trying to do. And you determine that list via object detection and you don't care what the browser/UA is.

NS8 is built on the IE engine and the Mozilla engine so testing in Mozilla and IE *should* satisfy NS8.
