It's very unlikely people still use that version since we're at version 60 now though.
Hi Dave, it wont ban just that version of Chrome, it will only ban any user with that entire user agent string, so no worries if there are some dinosaurs still using that version of Chrome

When I see some new IP, I put that in the file. I have many months to see them again.
You shouldn't have a large .htaccess file as it can lead to a greater use of resources which in turn could slow the experience for real users.

If i put that in the ban list it wont stop normal members viewing the forum.

Cheers once again
No it wont, it will prevent users that have that exact user agent string (which appears to be a modified one) from entering your site.
