You want recommendations, eh? 'Don't do it" is surely going to be the
most popular one ;) If you insist, however, you should just use
something like MooTools on client-side, because it detects the browser
by testing its features instead of looking at the user-agent field and
other stuff like that. You'd need to let your backend know, of course,
but that was covered recently when someone asked about screen size
and/or resolution detection.
