      Description

      Microsoft are dumping the EdgeHTML engine, and switching to a Chromium derivative. The suffix `Edg/` identifies the new browser.

       

      Old example: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/64.0.3282.140 Safari/537.36 Edge/18.17763

      New example: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/81.0.3993.0 Safari/537.36 Edg/81.0.369.0

       

      Both are likely to exist in the wild for a while.

          Identifying the new Microsoft Edge as a Chrome browser is not really false, as Edge says itself in its user-agent. By the way, I see that the given user agent example is Edge on Linux.
          Anyway, it's fixed now in javamelody-core and will be released in 1.82.
