The folks over at mozilla have a really cool Javascript sniffer that enables you to detect the browser's vendor, version number, and operating system. It has been tested on Navigator

2, 3, 4, and 5 (developer preview), Internet Explorer 3, 4, and 5, and Opera 3 on Windows 95, Windows NT, the Macintosh, and

SunOS5. It is believed to be compatible with all JavaScript-capable browser versions on all platforms.

Dan lives a quiet life in the bustling city of Milwaukee, WI. Although he founded what would become in 1998, he's since moved on to other projects and is now the owner of Progressive Networks, a Zimbra hosting company based in Milwaukee.
