Off By More Than One

Can you believe that someone is actually surfing the web using some free browser called Off By One that doesn't appear to have been updated in the last 2 years?

The user agent is as follows:

"Mozilla/6.0(compatible;OffByOne;Windows 2000)"
The irregular formatting convention triggered the bot trap with the lack of spaces alone.

Then it claims to be Mozilla 6.0 when it's probably Mozilla 3.0 at best.

Considering how few times, if ever, that this browser has visited it's obviously very rare.

Maybe some online nerd activist will get it declared as an endangered online species so it will become protected by law.

Don't laugh, you know it'll happen eventually...
