Hi Max,

I think you could try to make another one based on https://github.com/ua-parser
It provides language agnostic set of rules to parse user agent, which
updates quite frequently.
We use python and scala parsers based on those and it works pretty
good for us. Good thing that we can have consistent parser results
across different projects.
