#The first match wins. If the user agent contains something like
#(compatible; REAL BROWSER NAME HERE) then the real browser name
#is automatically extracted -- you do not need to worry about this.
#VERY IMPORTANT: write spaces in patterns as a '?' to avoid ending
#the pattern prematurely!

The Top User Agents Report: Patterns (useragentgroups) option is used to indicate that all agents matching a particular pattern should be reported as the same browser name in the Chart Top Web Browsers (useragents) report. Each entry in the useragentgroups option contains a pattern or regular expression and a title for that pattern. See the Patterns and Regular Expressions section for more information.

The three patterns shown above match all references to each of several different popular web browsers. Each character of each user agent name is matched against each pattern in the list. An * in a pattern matches any number of characters in a document name. A ? in a pattern matches any one character. Patterns have additional features, including support for regular expressions; for more information, see the Patterns and Regular Expressions section.
