Would doing this in JavaScript be acceptable?

Are you looking to see if they are using a particular browser ie Netscape or IE, then checking the version?

If you are looking for the browser name in a CGI script, you can get it in the enviroment HTTP_USER_AGENT.

Save the following as a html page.  There is a button called show me inside.  Upon clicking it, it will show the browser name.

<html>
<head>
<title>Show Browser</title>
</head>
<body>
<p><input type="submit" name="browser" value="show me"> </p>
</body>
<script Language="VBScript">
sub browser_onClick()
    Msgbox navigator.appName
end sub
</script>
</html>
