Determining the Client

Question:
The request.servervariables("HTTP_USER_AGENT") method does not seem to return the type of client (e.g., Netscape or Nokia handset) for mobile devices.

Is this the correct way to find the type of client browser?

Answer:
The server variables are the only reliable way to detect the browser. Most times it works, but because of a lack of standards in the industry, nothing is guaranteed.
