Web browser detection

I came across browserling, a website that allows people to test a website within cross browsers through one browser.  Then I think I may list some useful browser detection sites here as major web browsers are full of ambition to update their products.  As a user, we know that the web browser provides the “Add-ons” feature for us to manage plugins, however to some extent this feature does not display key details of a website if we want to know whether it runs on the browser/machine. Thus, a browser check becomes handy.

  • Mozilla Plugin Check and Updates tells what plugins you’ve installed and whether the plugin needs to update or not. It works best with Firefox 3.6+, Opera 10.5, Safari 4, Chrome 4.
  • PluginDetect is a Javascript library that detects plugins in major browsers (e.g., Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera, or SeaMonkey) on your computer.
  • Detect My Browser gives you information about your web browser and its plugins, CSS3 and HTML 5 capabilities. It uses Javascript libraries for the detection of your browser.
  • Detect mobile browsers provides open source scripts such as Apache, JavaScript, PHP, ASP, ColdFusion, C#, .NET, Python, JSP and Rails to check your mobile.
  • What is my browser.com shows your IP address and some frequently asked browser settings.
