Browser Detect Script

By Dan Ragle

First we're going to show you the output from this script, then we'll show you the script itself. Here's the output:

Navigator Object Data
Version Number

Browser Version

JavaScript Version

OS
Object Detection Tests

Method Detection Tests

Screen Properties

Document Properties

Flash Detection

And now, in all its glory, here's the script itself (right mouse click on the link and choose Save Target As to save it to your hard drive)!

// adapted from Netscape's Ultimate client-side JavaScript client sniffer
// and andy king's sniffer
// Revised May 7 99 to add is.nav5up and is.ie5up (see below). (see below).
// Revised June 11 99 to add additional props, checks
// Revised June 23 99 added screen props - gecko m6 doesn't support yet - abk
//                    converted to var is_ from is object to work everywhere
// 990624 - added cookie forms links frames checks - abk
// 001031 - ie4 mod 5.0 -> 5. (ie5.5 mididentified - abk)
//          is_ie4 mod tp work with ie6+ - abk
// 001120 - ns6 released, document.layers false, put back in
//        - is_nav6 test added - abk
// 001121 - ns6+ added, used document.getElementById, better test, dom-compl
// 010117 - actual version for ie3-5.5 by Michel Plungjan
// 010118 - actual version for ns6 by Michel Plungjan
// 010217 - netscape 6/mz 6 ie5.5 onload defer bug docs - abk
// 011107 - added is_ie6 and is_ie6up variables - dmr
// 020128 - added link to netscape's sniffer, on which this is based - abk
//          updated sniffer for aol4-6, ie5mac = js1.4, TVNavigator, AOLTV,
//          hotjava
// 020131 - cleaned up links, added more links to example object detection
// 020131 - a couple small problems with Opera detection. First, when Opera
//          is set to be compatible with other browsers it will contain their
//          information in the userAgent strings. Thus, to be sure we have 
//          Opera we should check for it before checking for the other bigs.
//          (And make sure the others are !opera.) Also corrected a minor
//          bug in the is_opera6up assignment.
// 020214 - Added link for Opera/JS compatibility; added improvements for 
//          windows xp/2000 id in opera and aol 7 id (thanks to Les
//          Hill, Les.Hill@getronics.com, for the suggestion).
// 020531 - Added N6/7 and moz identifiers. 
// 020605 - Added mozilla guessing, Netscape 7 identification, and cleaner
//          identification for Netscape 6. (this comment added after code 
//          changes)
// 020725 - Added is_gecko. -- dmr
// 021205 - Added is_Flash and is_FlashVersion, based on Doc JavaScript code. 
//          Added Opera 7 variables. -- dmr
// 021209 - Added aol8. -- dmr
// 030110 - Added is_safari, added 1.5 js designation for Opera 7. --dmr
// 030128 - Added is_konq, per user suggestion (thanks to Sam Vilain).
//          Removed duplicate Opera checks left over after last revision. - dmr
// 031124 - Added is_fb and version. We report this right after the is_moz
//          report. - dmr
// 040325 - Added is_fx and version. We report this right after the is_moz
//          report. - dmr
// 040421 - Added Debian check to is_moz. Thanks to Patrice Bridoux for
//          reporting this.
// 040517 - Added is_fb/is_fx to plugins based flash detection. Thanks to 
//          Martin Bischoff for pointing out this omission.
// 040617 - On Mac IE, appVersion differs from the version in the ua, 
//          with the UA appearing to be more accurate. As an experiment, 
//          for Mac we'll pull is_minor from the ua instead.
// 040831 - Fixed Opera bug in flash detection logic; when Opera has
//          "enable plugins" unchecked in preferences, the "plugin" 
//          variable is still true, but the "description" property 
//          belonging to it is undefined.
// 051202 - Added ua check for higher versions of Firefox (1.5+), 
//          since vendor/vendorSub is no longer used and the sniffer 
//          was assuming Mozilla. Also belatedly added is_nav8 and 
//          is_nav8up.
// 060919 - Some catchup mods here; adding is_opera8, is_opera9, 
//          and IE7 (thanks to Jonathan Warrington)
// 061009 - Added is_macosx check and safari to Flash checking, per 
//          Michael Hopkins 
//
// Everything you always wanted to know about your JavaScript client
// but were afraid to ask. Creates "is_" variables indicating:

//     is_major (integer indicating major version number: 2, 3, 4 ...)
//     is_minor (float   indicating full  version number: 2.02, 3.01, 4.04 ...)
// (3) browser vendor AND major version number
//     is_nav2, is_nav3, is_nav4, is_nav4up, is_nav5, is_nav5up, 
//     is_nav6, is_nav6up, is_ie3, is_ie4, is_ie4up, is_ie5up, is_ie6...
// (4) JavaScript version number:
//     is_js (float indicating full JavaScript version number: 1, 1.1, 1.2 ...)
// (5) OS platform and version:
//     is_win, is_win16, is_win32, is_win31, is_win95, is_winnt, is_win98
//     is_os2

// Note: you don't want your Nav4 or IE4 code to "turn off" or
// stop working when Nav5 and IE5 (or later) are released, so
// in conditional code forks, use is_nav4up ("Nav4 or greater")
// and is_ie4up ("IE4 or greater") instead of is_nav4 or is_ie4
// to check version in code which you want to work on future
// versions. For DOM tests scripters commonly used the 
// is_getElementById test, but make sure you test your code as
// filter non-compliant browsers (Opera 5-6 for example) as some 
// browsers return true for this test, and don't fully support
// the W3C's DOM1.
