NOTE:
It is always best to avoid browser-specific code entirely where possible. The JQuery $.support property is available for detection of support for particular features rather than relying on browser name and version.

In Opera for example, you can fake an internet explorer or firefox instance.
A detailed description of JQuery.support can be found here: http://api.jquery.com/jQuery.support/

When coding websites, i always make sure, that basic functionality like navigation is also accessible to non-js users. This may be object to discussion and can be ignored if the homepage is targeted to a special audience.

For Browser Type:

navigator.sayswho= (function(){
var ua= navigator.userAgent,
N= navigator.appName, tem,
M= ua.match(/(opera|chrome|safari|firefox|msie|trident)\/?\s*([\d\.]+)/i) || [];
M= M[2]? [M[1], M[2]]:[N, navigator.appVersion, '-?'];
if(M && (tem= ua.match(/version\/([\.\d]+)/i))!= null) M[2]= tem[1];
return M.join(' ');
})();



navigator.appVersion retunrs Browser Version
