WOW64 User Agent

Hello,

I was reading my access logs, and I saw weird requests from this user agent:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; Trident/7.0; rv:11.0) like Gecko

Its looks to be windows, but what is the WOW64 bit?

This user agent string belongs to IE browser running on Windows 10. The browser is developed by Microsoft Corporation and renders web pages using the Trident engine

Source: https://user-agents.net/string/mozilla-5-0-windows-nt-10-0-wow64-trident-7-0-rv-11-0-like-gecko-dnt-1

I think it means the “Trident Engine” Part.

Yeah, who uses IE in 2020?

You would be surprised. Reminds me of this article:

Its about COBOL, that is very, very, old. A recent comment was about how NJ was looking for COBOL programmers (in 2020!!!)
