            Bug ID: 195976
           Summary: Thaw User Agent?
           Product: WebKit
           Version: Safari 12
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: New Bugs
          Assignee: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
          Reporter: eelco at motif.co

I understand the reasoning to freeze the User Agent (https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=180365), but it makes researching WebKit bugs as an outsider harder. Especially during betas and because not all releases are listed (https://trac.webkit.org/browser/webkit/releases/Apple).

A little bit of version information (other than the OS version) in the User Agent would go a long way (perhaps a truncated WebKit version), while still countering fingerprinting. I can’t imagine many people still using User Agent sniffing as feature detection in 2019, but you probably have a more complete idea about the numbers there.
