This property contains the name and version of the client software making the request. This is a means of building client user agent dependent responses that deliver pages that are tailored to the particular browser being used.

You might use this to respond with a Netscape Navigator version of a page that behaves differently to the page you return to a user who requested the page from an MSIE browser.
