WooCommerce Friendly User Agent

Description

Unknown to many, WooCommerce captures the device/platform, browser and browser version used by a customer when an order is placed, this is known as the user agent string. This useful information is currently not shown anywhere in the WooCommerce plugin.

WooCommerce Friendly User Agent simply displays this information as a new column on the Orders page and within the Edit Order page. You can then see what customers are using what devices and browsers.
