how to get exact browser name and version

Get browser name and version using javascript

With the help of JavaScript we can determine exact browser name and its version. The JavaScript object “navigator.userAgent” contains the complete information of a browser like CodeName, Name, Version etc. With the help of regular expressions we can extract the information that we need.

<!DOCTYPE html>
function detectBrowser(){
var N= navigator.appName;
var UA= navigator.userAgent;
var temp;
var browserVersion= UA.match(/(opera|chrome|safari|firefox|msie)\/?\s*(\.?\d+(\.\d+)*)/i);
if(browserVersion && (temp= UA.match(/version\/([\.\d]+)/i))!= null)
browserVersion[2]= temp[1];
browserVersion= browserVersion? [browserVersion[1], browserVersion[2]]: [N, navigator.appVersion,'-?'];
return browserVersion;
function browserCheck(){
<button onclick="browserCheck();">Click here to check!</button>
