How to get information about the current browser

This code shows you how ASP.NET simplifies information about the current browser into class properites. There are others but these are the most useful.

<%@ Page Language="c#" %>
<script runat="server">

   public void Page_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e) {
     HttpBrowserCapabilities bc = Request.Browser;
     Response.Write("Name = " + bc.Browser + "<br>");
     Response.Write("Version = " + bc.Version + "<br>");
     Response.Write("Platform = " + bc.Platform + "<br>");
     Response.Write("Is Crawler = " + bc.Crawler + "<br>");
     Response.Write("Is AOL = " + bc.AOL + "<br>");
   }

</script>
