IE9 is (mistakenly) identified as Mozilla.  User agent :

Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 9.0; Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; Trident/5.0; MAAU)

I understand that technically it uses a Mozilla agent, but still, IE9 is registered as Mozilla when I play with it.

Just so you know and are able to fix it if you want to,

I think I've added it now.  Does it work?

I just tested and, no, when I add tiles under IE9, they're still listed as Mozilla.  The ste also tells me that I'm using Mozilla.
And when I open Opera and see what I just added, it's still listed as Mozilla.

(for reference, user agent
Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 9.0; Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; Trident/5.0)
(I don't know why the MAAU pat went missing this time, but the result is the same with and without it, I checked)

What if you go to this page with IE9 - what does it say?

[edit] Forget that - I uploaded the updated script to the wrong folder!  It ought to be fixed now.

Yup, IE9 is now correctly detected as IE9.

Many thanks !
