Q1502 How can I detect what browser is hitting my site and what its capabilities are?

You are here: irt.org | FAQ | HTML | Q1502 [ previous next ]

The best way to do this is by using a third party ASP component called BrowserHawk. This component automatically detects the visiting browser and all of its capabilities - such as the browser type, version, language, platform - as we as other things such as disabled JavaScript, cookies, installed plugins, user connection speed and more. A free trial of BrowserHawk is available at http://www.cyscape.com.

'This code requires BrowserHawk 2000 to be installed.
'You can download a free trial from http://www.cyscape.com

Set bh = Server.CreateObject("cyScape.browserObj")
response.write "Your browser is: " & bh.browser & "<BR>"
response.write "Version: " & bh.version & "<BR>"
response.write "Platform: " & bh.platform & "<BR>"
