At the moment I notice that ddg is faking a browsers user agent on zeroclick api requests.

Specifically, I get:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US) AppleWebKit/534.16 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/10.0.648.127 Safari/534.16

Is there a reason to not be providing a better user agent that describes what is actually making the request?

@sjparkinson I believe we do this to protect our developers privacy, rather than exposing the details of their actual browser.
