Detecting Browser Capabilities With BrowserHawk
(Page 1 of 6 )

One of the constant non-niceties when developing web sites is that of browser incompatibility. Does the client's browser support JavaScript? How about cookies or flash, or any of the dozen or so other features that many modern web browsers facilitate.

In this article we're going to take a look at Cyscape's BrowserHawk component, which we can use in our ASP pages to find out the capabilities of any visitors web browser.

To test the sample code in this article, you should have access to a Windows web server running IIS version 5. You should have also downloaded BrowserHawk as mentioned above.
