NEWS FLASH! Attention businesses & developers: The WhatIsMyBrowser.com API has been launched!

Web Developers or I.T. Support need to know which web browser their client or staff are using. It's hard to help a non-technical person figure out exactly what browser and plugin versions they're using, so whatismybrowser.com does this quickly, simply and clearly for them, making your job easier.

This site's creation stemmed from a real world need; I needed to find out what browser set up one of my client's staff was using, however all the existing sites on the net that tried to do this displayed the information far too technically and with too much arcane user agent information for the average user who just needs to know the top line information.

This site aims to be as straightforward and user friendly for non technical users, extensive in its detection, and to still provide the extended information for advanced users who need it.

The detection algorithms used on the site are being updated daily to keep detecting new browsers as they are released.

Hopefully this site can help you with your clients; I love hearing success stories, so email me and let me know if it made your day a bit easier.

And a quick plug for my hosting company, I use Linode to host this site and I really do love them. If you need quality Linux hosting for your site, you should definitely check them out.
