What THEY APPEAR AS...::
OS and Browser Detection through scripts


Determining the OS and browser types is not that difficult job to do. Yeah, Windows NT is the most popular os kernel, but "Windows NT" usually is being associated with "Windows NT 4.0" that is not alive. "Windows 2000 Professional" usually represents itself as "Windows NT 5.0"; "Windows XP Professional" usually represents itself as "Windows NT 5.1", and it's not a big deal to find those strings and associate them with the proper OS name.

A few months ago I made a research for getting the userAgent, appVersion, and appName strings. Here are some results (a new research like that could be made including other browsers and new browser versions):
