User Agent ? How to identify the OS from the user agent

The user agent appears as the following:

HTTP User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US) AppleWebKit/532.0 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/ Safari/532.0

Is this a hybrid Mac Windows OS or is this something else. What is AppleWebKit for anyway..sorry I am a PC :)
1 Solution
Applewebkit is part of the Safari web browser (that also works on PCs)

User agent is not a foolproof way of determining OS as it can be spoofed.

See also: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WebKit for a complete description of webkit.
