The User-Agent request header and Windows 11

Post by Albert Wiersch »

The User-Agent request header hasn't been a good way to detect a user's OS in quite some time, and now Windows 11 will detect as Windows 10. Instead, if you need to detect a user's OS, you can use new User-Agent Client Hints request headers.
