Anybody have a clue what software is used for these types of requests?
Is it the Chrome browser or some sort pf plug-in?

Seems they are trying to pull pages from Drupal's cache.

If you do a Google search for /cache/eb91756ae6745d22433f80be4ec59445, some of the results are valid pages. If the page exists and you take a peek at the source code of the page, you'll see that they are Drupal based sites. I guess it might be an attempt to exploit some kind of vulnerability.

Check Botopedia.org for user-agents data and, if suspicious, use the "Check IP" tools for IP verification.
