Google: We Don't Have Different GoogleBot User Agents For Crawling JavaScript

John Mueller did add that sometimes GoogleBot will not render the full JavaScript on the first pass or first try, it may come back later or render it later. John said, “rendering isn’t always immediate on crawl.”

Interesting little tidbit of knowledge for some of you laser focused SEOs.
