I know; the title sounds funny. Everyone knows which browser they are using. So, what is a need to have a service that tells just that? And even if such a service exists, why would we write about it? Believe me, this service is actually useful. Patiently follow along.
Basically, you just open this website and immediately find all the important information about your browser, without a need to go to different areas of the browser to find that info.
Now, coming back to the question: Why the heck would you need this?
Usage Scenario 2: Let’s say you are a web developer and have developed a nice web application. However, some user(s) complain that your dream project that is nicely working on your system is not working on them. In that case, you need to find out what is going on with their system; and in most of the cases the problem is with the browser configuration. If your users are not technical, then it would be very difficult to explain to them how to find info about their browser that you need. A simple way would be to ask them to just go to this website and send you all the info that they see. How simple!
Now that we have sufficiently established need for this website, let’s proceed to understand more about it.
