Can't be done in PHP because the PHP runs on the server and the only info passed to the server as to what browser it is comes via the useragent and all browsers claim to be Internet Explorer in that field (at least part of the time).

You could use HTML.

<!--[if IE]>
IE specific code goes here, all other browsers will treat is as a comment
<!--[if !IE]-->
code for other browsers goes here

I found this on the internet (see attached file).
It seems to work for me. Detach it and change the
extension to .php Then upload into the same directory
as your PHP script.

Play around with it and see what you find.

This is the part in your PHP script that utilizes "browser.php":

$br = new Browser;
echo "$br->Platform, $br->Name version $br->Version";

something like this ....

$br = new Browser;
//echo "$br->Platform, $br->Name version $br->Version";
if($br->Name === "MSIE"){
header ("location: my_ie_page.php");
elseif($br->Name === "Firefox"){
header ("location: my_firefox_page.php");
header ("location: default.php");
