per this message https://forum.rclone.org/t/all-of-a-sudden-googleapi-error-429/9977/145

we should default to using the Chrome user agent setting. Some claim it is faster than using other user-agent values - which kind of makes sense that Google might prioritize their own browser when accessing google drive.

here is the entire user agent value (btw, does not work currently in plexguide)
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/70.0.3538.77 Safari/537.36

Well I tried this but it screwed with my mounts and made them non operational for whatever reason. I did use the chrome agent on my Unraid box and it worked there.
