User_agent.php in sys/libraries doesn't work with the googlebot user agent string:

Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Googlebot/2.1; +

It finds the Mozilla/5.0 first and sets the user agent to browser.

Change the _compile_data() function to:
foreach (array('_set_robot', '_set_browser', '_set_mobile') as $function)

instead of:
foreach (array('_set_browser', '_set_robot', '_set_mobile') as $function)

to fix it.

I was just looking through my logfiles, and was wondering why they were full of bots(2 mill entries, with a majority being bots).
I was using something like:
if ($this->agent->is_browser())

Now I'm looking into using BrowseCap (
as it seems to be more accurate and detailed.
