StatCounter will only show you Browser type and O/S
Google Analytics will show you Browse type, O/S, network location, connection speeds, Flash versions

You might have to go with javascript for this. Here are a few code sample repositories:

You could check out Nikto (http://www.cirt.net/code/nikto.shtml).  NMap (http://insecure.org/nmap/) is a great tool as well, but it has a bit of a learning curve

Also you can add Fiddler to IE or LiveHttpHeaders to Firefox.  Run the tool, go to a site and whent eh page is loaded you will find info like this in the tools (exampe from HttpLive Headers):
