I have tried using the code below but it only display results in Chrome and Mozilla not working in IE6.

<div id="example"></div>

<script type="text/javascript">

txt = "<p>Browser CodeName: " + navigator.appCodeName + "</p>";
txt+= "<p>Browser Name: " + navigator.appName + "</p>";
txt+= "<p>Browser Version: " + navigator.appVersion + "</p>";
txt+= "<p>Cookies Enabled: " + navigator.cookieEnabled + "</p>";
txt+= "<p>Platform: " + navigator.platform + "</p>";
txt+= "<p>User-agent header: " + navigator.userAgent + "</p>";

document.getElementById("example").innerHTML=txt;

</script>

Output:

Browser CodeName: Mozilla

Browser Name: Netscape

Browser Version: 5.0 (Windows)

Cookies Enabled: true

Platform: Win32

User-agent header: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:12.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/12.0

I need to get the version "Firefox/12.0" only.

If you list all of window.navigator's properties using

console.log(navigator);

You'll see something like this

# platform = Win32
# appCodeName = Mozilla
# appName = Netscape
# appVersion = 5.0 (Windows; en-US)
# language = en-US
# mimeTypes = [object MimeTypeArray]
# oscpu = Windows NT 5.1
# vendor = Firefox
# vendorSub = 1.0.7
# product = Gecko
# productSub = 20050915
# plugins = [object PluginArray]
# securityPolicy =
# userAgent = Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050915 Firefox/1.0.7
# cookieEnabled = true
# javaEnabled = function javaEnabled() { [native code] }
# taintEnabled = function taintEnabled() { [native code] }
# preference = function preference() { [native code] }

Note that oscpu attribute gives you the Windows version. Also, you should know that:

'Windows 3.11' => 'Win16',
'Windows 95' => '(Windows 95)|(Win95)|(Windows_95)',
'Windows 98' => '(Windows 98)|(Win98)',
'Windows 2000' => '(Windows NT 5.0)|(Windows 2000)',
'Windows XP' => '(Windows NT 5.1)|(Windows XP)',
'Windows Server 2003' => '(Windows NT 5.2)',
'Windows Vista' => '(Windows NT 6.0)',
'Windows 7' => '(Windows NT 6.1)',
'Windows 8' => '(Windows NT 6.2)|(WOW64)',
'Windows 10' => '(Windows 10.0)|(Windows NT 10.0)',
'Windows NT 4.0' => '(Windows NT 4.0)|(WinNT4.0)|(WinNT)|(Windows NT)',
'Windows ME' => 'Windows ME',
'Open BSD' => 'OpenBSD',
'Sun OS' => 'SunOS',
'Linux' => '(Linux)|(X11)',
'Mac OS' => '(Mac_PowerPC)|(Macintosh)',
'QNX' => 'QNX',
'BeOS' => 'BeOS',
'OS/2' => 'OS/2',
'Search Bot'=>'(nuhk)|(Googlebot)|(Yammybot)|(Openbot)|(Slurp)|(MSNBot)|(Ask Jeeves/Teoma)|(ia_archiver)'

Edit: This library is now available through Bower and NPM. See github repo for details.

UPDATED ANSWER:

  • Live example: CodePen
  • Latest version: Github repository
  • Don't like Bootstrap? Check: Foundation demo and Custom framework demos
  • Have a problem? Open an issue

Disclaimer: I'm the author.

Here's a few things you can do using the latest version (Responsive Bootstrap Toolkit 2.5.0):

// Wrap everything in an IIFE
(function($, viewport){

    // Executes only in XS breakpoint
    if( viewport.is('xs') ) {
        // ...
    }

    // Executes in SM, MD and LG breakpoints
    if( viewport.is('>=sm') ) {
        // ...
    }

    // Executes in XS and SM breakpoints
    if( viewport.is('<md') ) {
        // ...
    }

    // Execute only after document has fully loaded
    $(document).ready(function() {
        if( viewport.is('xs') ) {
            // ...
        }
    });

    // Execute code each time window size changes
    $(window).resize(
        viewport.changed(function() {
            if( viewport.is('xs') ) {
                // ...
            }
        })
    ); 

})(jQuery, ResponsiveBootstrapToolkit);

As of version 2.3.0, you don't need the four <div> elements mentioned below.


ORIGINAL ANSWER:

I don't think you need any huge script or library for that. It's a fairly simple task.

Insert the following elements just before </body>:

<div class="device-xs visible-xs"></div>
<div class="device-sm visible-sm"></div>
<div class="device-md visible-md"></div>
<div class="device-lg visible-lg"></div>

These 4 divs allow you check for currently active breakpoint. For an easy JS detection, use the following function:

function isBreakpoint( alias ) {
    return $('.device-' + alias).is(':visible');
}

Now to perform a certain action only on the smallest breakpoint you could use:

if( isBreakpoint('xs') ) {
    $('.someClass').css('property', 'value');
}

Detecting changes after DOM ready is also fairly simple. All you need is a lightweight window resize listener like this one:

var waitForFinalEvent = function () {
      var b = {};
      return function (c, d, a) {
        a || (a = "I am a banana!");
        b[a] && clearTimeout(b[a]);
        b[a] = setTimeout(c, d)
      }
    }();

var fullDateString = new Date();

Once you're equipped with it, you can start listening for changes and execute breakpoint-specific functions like so:

$(window).resize(function () {
    waitForFinalEvent(function(){

        if( isBreakpoint('xs') ) {
            $('.someClass').css('property', 'value');
        }

    }, 300, fullDateString.getTime())
});

Unfortunately, you cannot. See Bug 625238 - Add device info to User-Agent and the related Bug 807495 - User Agent does not include handset Device Model.

In general, Mozilla has a policy of not adding User Agent (or HTTP header) information, and they currently have the opinion that developers do not need to know the running Android version.
