# Golfing with User Agents

Usually when performing an internet challenge, there's no problem with having to specify a user agent, but when it comes to dealing with Google, it changes.

Google blacklists the Urllib user agent, presumably to stop spambots, so you have to specify a user agent. This takes up many bytes, and is frankly rather annoying.

Note: I have updated my Python answers to use the tip suggested below

So how do you get around this problem using the shortest number of bytes?

• @PeterTaylor Well although the question is oriented towards Python, I was hoping that the solution could be used to help with other languages – Beta Decay Aug 7 '15 at 15:12
