Here's what I get when I inspect user agents visiting my site:
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) HeadlessChrome/92.0.4512.0 Safari/537.36 Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) HeadlessChrome/91.0.4472.114 Safari/537.36 Prerender (+https://github.com/prerender/prerender) ...
What does this prerender thing mean? What does this HeadlessChrome mean? Are all of these bots?
FYI, I am using Netlify as my hosting.

Could be anything: An uptime checker, a screenshot generator, …

Thanks, it was a good read, bookmarked, and followed!
Short, but sweet.
