 each browser name supported, just a configuration for the web service.

 This is not asking to describe each browser beyond its name. I discussed
 the "Android" case because that name is incorrect and even I (with over 10
 years of experience in web development) had no idea what it meant.

 > The page https://caniuse.com/usage-table documents the browsers included
 and the global percentages of usage, as you can see "Android Browser" is
 included in that list, WordPress does not target that browser though
 because its usage is under 1%.

 Well, that is not what [https://make.wordpress.org/core/handbook/best-
 practices/browser-support/ Browser support] documents (unless of course
 "Last 1 Android versions" refers to something other than "Android
 Browser", but in that case, that would be completely unclear).

 Thank you for linking to that page again though because I notice that
 caniuse's "Android Browser" is supposedly at version 76, and the last
 version with any market share was version 4.4.4, which does not match
 https://android-browser.en.uptodown.com/android/versions at all. I
 therefore have no idea what that last page is about, unless it's some kind
 of fork of "Android Browser" which is no longer official (maintained by

 Also, please note that this ticket is about a lot more than Android
 Browser (see comment #2).
