"I think it should officially be called "Oregan Media browser 3 for RISC OS" or similar, (especially as the user agent reported to websites). otherwise is would appear from outside the RISC OS world to be a browser only used by a few thousand people as opposed to the (presumably) far higher total."

Well for a lot of the currently installed user base of Oregan Media Browser it still reports it self as 'Interactor', so using Oregan Media Browser in the user agent isn't going to show up that high at the moment. Especially as not all devices it is used in actually have the ability to browse the web. Personally I would prefer what ever name was used in the User Agent string to not contain any spaces, as I think that just upsets some of the scripts that parse user agent strings.

"The application name should be !Oregano3 obviously,"

I wouldn't mind it still being called !Oregano, but then you wouldn't be able to run all 3 versions side by side.
