Configuring Piwik in Log import mode, I found many visits coming from a Netscape browser, but "Netscape" never occurs in my logs.
So I wrote a little logger into UserAgentParser.php, to find out what was identified as Natscape, here's the result:

Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Ezooms/1.0; ezooms.bot<a class='mention' href='https://github.com/gmail'>@gmail</a>.com)
Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Blekkobot; ScoutJet; +http://blekko.com/about/blekkobot)
Mozilla/3.0 (compatible; Indy Library)
Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Genieo/1.0 http://www.genieo.com/webfilter.html)

These lines are repeated several times, even if i do not set the --enable_bots option.
I reported only unique values.

I'm opening this ticket as suggested by Matt in the community forum, I hope this report will help to solve this issue.

Thx for the report.

=> I think we should be a bit more clever here, and mark these so-called "Netscape" as "Bots"

Hi ,

I get this view of the browsers used. [[Image(http://issues.piwik.org/attachments/3788/piwik%20browser%20view.png)]]

I am using the standard dashboard, in piwik 2.03, and the yireo plugin to a joomla website.

Seems somewhat weird.

The old useragentparser might detected those useragents as netscape.
Using the DevicesDetection plugin should fix that issue. The new UserAgentParerEnhanced should detect those as Bots with an Unknown browser.

@Paul: The DevicesDetection plugin isn't active by default in Piwik 2.0. Please try to activate it.

@anonymous-piwik-user commented on February 17th 2014

Okay. Thanks.
After activating the DevicesDetection plugin it reports these as unknown. Is it possible to parse the older data using this newly installed plugin?

@sgiehl commented on February 17th 2014 Member

Sorry, that is not possible. We do not store the useragent in the database, thus it's not possible to reparse it.
