Look at the user agent in the servlet or jsp:

<%!
public final static int IE = 0;
public final static int NETSCAPE = 1;
public final static int WML = 2;

public int getBrowser(HttpServletRequest request) {
   String accept = request.getHeader("ACCEPT");
   if (null != accept && -1 !=
accept.indexOf("wml")) {
     return WML;
   }
   String agent = request.getHeader("USER-AGENT");
   if (null != agent && -1 !=
agent.indexOf("MSIE")) {
     return IE;
   }
   return NETSCAPE;
}
%>
