Okay so I'm putting out the User Agent out of the request header.
Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)

Now I can get the msie or netscape or those others ones, what I need next is to get the version number, as I need to restrict who can get into the next part.

Thanks for the good link.  I have another question, still has to do kinda with the other one.

When I try for Firefox vs Mozilla vs Netscape I run into a few issues, and Netscape 6 is nothing like Firefox or Mozilla.

Firefox -
mozilla/5.0 (windows; u; windows nt 5.1; rv:1.7.3) gecko/20041001 firefox/0.10.1

Netscape 6 -
mozilla/5.0 (windows; u; windows nt 5.0; en-us; m18) gecko/20010131 netscape6/6.01

Mozilla 1.7 -
mozilla/5.0 (windows; u; windows nt 5.1; en-us; rv:1.7.3) gecko/20040910


Any help?

The “commercial” version of Mozilla is Netscape 7.x.
mozilla is a advanced open source of netscape. not in total but quite a major junk.
firefox is an offshoot  of mozilla. the mozilla family includes browsers like netscape/firefox/mozilla.
If you are coding for netscape its one and the saqme logic for mozilla/firefox.

Thanks for the points and grade
