I was checking my site stats for my blog and under the browser share section I was looking to see what percentage of my readers were using Firefox instead of IE and I saw a listing for Google 4.X at 2%. Is this a Google Browser or if not, what the heck are my site stats picking up? Here's a link to the gif...

I'm not sure...I don't remember seeing the Google designation in my browser stats in the past. This seems to be something new, but it could indeed just be the Googlebot (version 4?)...

My Googlebot visiting is at v2.1.... it might also be just some spammer hiding as Googlebot?
