Is there a reason there is a line item titled "Safari" without a version number within the default Browsers Report in Adobe Analytics? I received this question from IT - since there are other line items featuring Safari with a version number, I'm confused as to why this exists. See screenshot for visual and I appreciate any/all information you can provide. Thanks!

The Browser value is a result of the http user agent header parsing (lookup) that may look as follows:

  • Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10_6_8; de-at) AppleWebKit/533.21.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/5.0.5 Safari/533.21.1
  • Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10_5_6; en-us) AppleWebKit/528.16 (KHTML, like Gecko)

You may recognize the version only for the first example. "Safari" without a version will likely be returned for the second.

My question would then be in what circumstances would Adobe be unable to determine the version number and why that is the case.

It's likely used as a placeholder in case the version can't be determined.
