    Jquery have a nice feature to know about browser details. it is deprecated, If the functionality is removed, it will likely be easily accessible using a plugin.

     

    It is safe to use it to determine whether or not to call $(document).ready(), means you can use it without ready() function.  $.browser uses navigator.userAgent to determine the platform

     

    To use it you can find on which browser your code is rendering like browser name version and OS and much more.

     

    Below is script code example -

     

    if(!jQuery.browser){
      jQuery.browser = {};
      jQuery.browser.mozilla = false;
      jQuery.browser.webkit = false;
      jQuery.browser.opera = false;
      jQuery.browser.safari = false;
      jQuery.browser.chrome = false;
      jQuery.browser.msie = false;
      jQuery.browser.android = false;
      jQuery.browser.blackberry = false;
      jQuery.browser.ios = false;
      jQuery.browser.operaMobile = false;
      jQuery.browser.windowsMobile = false;
      jQuery.browser.mobile = false;
    
      var nAgt = navigator.userAgent;
      jQuery.browser.ua = nAgt;
    
      jQuery.browser.name  = navigator.appName;
      jQuery.browser.fullVersion  = ''+parseFloat(navigator.appVersion);
      jQuery.browser.majorVersion = parseInt(navigator.appVersion,10);
      var nameOffset,verOffset,ix;
    
      if ((verOffset=nAgt.indexOf("Opera"))!=-1) {
        jQuery.browser.opera = true;
        jQuery.browser.name = "Opera";
        jQuery.browser.fullVersion = nAgt.substring(verOffset+6);
        if ((verOffset=nAgt.indexOf("Version"))!=-1)
          jQuery.browser.fullVersion = nAgt.substring(verOffset+8);
      }
    
      else if ( (verOffset=nAgt.indexOf("MSIE"))!=-1) {
        jQuery.browser.msie = true;
        jQuery.browser.name = "Microsoft Internet Explorer";
        jQuery.browser.fullVersion = nAgt.substring(verOffset+5);
      }
    
      else if ((verOffset=nAgt.indexOf("Chrome"))!=-1) {
        jQuery.browser.webkit = true;
        jQuery.browser.chrome = true;
        jQuery.browser.name = "Chrome";
        jQuery.browser.fullVersion = nAgt.substring(verOffset+7);
      }
    
      else if ((verOffset=nAgt.indexOf("Safari"))!=-1) {
        jQuery.browser.webkit = true;
        jQuery.browser.safari = true;
        jQuery.browser.name = "Safari";
        jQuery.browser.fullVersion = nAgt.substring(verOffset+7);
        if ((verOffset=nAgt.indexOf("Version"))!=-1)
          jQuery.browser.fullVersion = nAgt.substring(verOffset+8);
      }
    
      else if ((verOffset=nAgt.indexOf("AppleWebkit"))!=-1) {
        jQuery.browser.webkit = true;
        jQuery.browser.name = "Safari";
        jQuery.browser.fullVersion = nAgt.substring(verOffset+7);
        if ((verOffset=nAgt.indexOf("Version"))!=-1)
          jQuery.browser.fullVersion = nAgt.substring(verOffset+8);
      }
    
      else if ((verOffset=nAgt.indexOf("Firefox"))!=-1) {
        jQuery.browser.mozilla = true;
        jQuery.browser.name = "Firefox";
        jQuery.browser.fullVersion = nAgt.substring(verOffset+8);
      }
    
      else if ( (nameOffset=nAgt.lastIndexOf(' ')+1) < (verOffset=nAgt.lastIndexOf('/')) ){
        jQuery.browser.name = nAgt.substring(nameOffset,verOffset);
        jQuery.browser.fullVersion = nAgt.substring(verOffset+1);
        if (jQuery.browser.name.toLowerCase()==jQuery.browser.name.toUpperCase()) {
          jQuery.browser.name = navigator.appName;
        }
      }
    
      jQuery.browser.android = (/Android/i).test(nAgt);
      jQuery.browser.blackberry = (/BlackBerry/i).test(nAgt);
      jQuery.browser.ios = (/iPhone|iPad|iPod/i).test(nAgt);
      jQuery.browser.operaMobile = (/Opera Mini/i).test(nAgt);
      jQuery.browser.windowsMobile = (/IEMobile/i).test(nAgt);
      jQuery.browser.mobile = jQuery.browser.android || jQuery.browser.blackberry || jQuery.browser.ios || jQuery.browser.windowsMobile || jQuery.browser.operaMobile;
    
      if ((ix=jQuery.browser.fullVersion.indexOf(";"))!=-1)
        jQuery.browser.fullVersion=jQuery.browser.fullVersion.substring(0,ix);
      if ((ix=jQuery.browser.fullVersion.indexOf(" "))!=-1)
        jQuery.browser.fullVersion=jQuery.browser.fullVersion.substring(0,ix);
    
      jQuery.browser.majorVersion = parseInt(''+jQuery.browser.fullVersion,10);
      if (isNaN(jQuery.browser.majorVersion)) {
        jQuery.browser.fullVersion  = ''+parseFloat(navigator.appVersion);
        jQuery.browser.majorVersion = parseInt(navigator.appVersion,10);
      }
      jQuery.browser.version = jQuery.browser.majorVersion;
    }
    
    var txt = '' + 'navigator.appName = ' + navigator.appName + '<br>' + 'navigator.userAgent = ' + navigator.userAgent + '<br><br><br>' + 'jQuery.browser.name  = ' + jQuery.browser.name + '<br>' + 'jQuery.browser.fullVersion  = ' + jQuery.browser.fullVersion + '<br>' + 'jQuery.browser.version = ' + jQuery.browser.version + '<br>' + 'jQuery.browser.majorVersion = ' + jQuery.browser.majorVersion + '<br><br><br>' + 'jQuery.browser.msie = ' + jQuery.browser.msie + '<br>' + 'jQuery.browser.mozilla = ' + jQuery.browser.mozilla + '<br>' + 'jQuery.browser.opera = ' + jQuery.browser.opera + '<br>' + 'jQuery.browser.chrome = ' + jQuery.browser.chrome + '<br>'+ 'jQuery.browser.webkit = ' + jQuery.browser.webkit + '<br>' + '<br>' + 'jQuery.browser.android = ' + jQuery.browser.android + '<br>' + 'jQuery.browser.blackberry = ' + jQuery.browser.blackberry + '<br>' + 'jQuery.browser.ios = ' + jQuery.browser.ios + '<br>' +  'jQuery.browser.operaMobile = ' + jQuery.browser.operaMobile + '<br>' + 'jQuery.browser.windowsMobile = ' + jQuery.browser.windowsMobile + '<br>' + 'jQuery.browser.mobile = ' + jQuery.browser.mobile;
