User Detail Scripts - Page 2

These scripts all deal with information about the visitors. See how many sites they've been to since they started their browser, their hostname, and a bunch of information about their browser. These are our favorite scripts! Some are very difficult to write - just look at the code. General questions about these user-details scripts here should be posted to The JavaScript Forum.

  • Browser & Version Redirect
    Sep 9, 2000

    If you maintain separate pages for Netscape and Internet Explorer browsers and want to additionally divide each browser's page into version pages, this script is for you. The script will create a link (or can be changed to automatically redirect) to browser[version number].html. (For example, a visitor with Netscape 4.5 would be see a link to netscape4.html)

  • Browser Information
    Sep 9, 2000

    This script does a great job of displaying information about your web browser including version, your computer's platform, if Java is enabled, how many pages you've visited, and screen resolution. Take a look, it's pretty cool.

  • Browser Name
    Sep 9, 2000

    I always like to show the visitor a little bit more about their computer than just the name. This script does that for me, or you. :-)

  • Browser Properties
    Sep 9, 2000

    More information about the web browser than you knew existed! Find out the code name, color depth, platform, if java is enabled, resolution, ip address, hostname, and more! Simply incredible.

  • Browser Version 2
    Sep 9, 2000

    This script will also provide a little bit more information about the visitor's browser. Check it out!

  • Browser-Specific Entry
    Sep 9, 2000

    If you maintain a different page for Microsoft Internet Explorer and another for Netscape browsers, you should use this script. Quite simply, it sends the right browser to the right browser-optimized page.

  • CSS Support Redirect
    Ronnie Moore Sep 9, 2000

    Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), supported in version 4.0 and new browsers, allows webmasters to have more control over how their sites are viewed. Because some visitors do browse with them turned off, this script checks if CSS is supported AND enabled -- If CSS is on, they are redirected to your CSS-enhanced page. Otherwise, they are sent to a normal page without CSS. Cool!

  • History Length
    Sep 9, 2000

    It is surprising to know that a web page can actually know how many pages you have been to this browser session. That is exactly what this script does.

  • Hostname
    Sep 9, 2000

    (works only for Netscape Browsers with Java enabled) If you would like to show your visitors computer hostname, use this script. Very cool.

  • JavaScript Version
    Sep 9, 2000

    Neat little example which displays what JavaScript version the visitor's browser supports. It's pretty neat, extremely simple. Check it out!

  • Right Browser?
    Sep 9, 2000

    How do you let your visitors know that they do or do not have the right browser to view your site? Use this JavaScript! It'll tell them if they are using the right browser and the right version, or not....

  • Safe Colors
    Sep 9, 2000

    If you are involved with graphics creation or website design, it's important to understand how colors are seen on different browsers and different platforms. This script will show you all the "safe" colors, the ones that show up the same for all browsers and platforms. So, when you design a site or create an image, be sure to use the "browser-safe" colors! Don't you just love JavaScript?

  • Screen Details
    Sep 9, 2000

    Use this script to show visitors several interesting details about their screen - the screen width, screen height, and screen resolution of their browser window!! You might use this script to suggest that your visitors expand their browser to a larger size before accessing your site, etc.

  • Screen Percentage
    Sep 9, 2000

    (Requires 4.0+ browsers) Displays what percentage of your screen's total area is being used by the browser window. This script will not even be run and will not cause errors in lower version browsers.

  • Simple Info Line
    Sep 9, 2000

    Do you just not like the browser and computer "user agent" line that the web browsers use? This neat script (written by Netscape!) actually converts the user agent line into a more "user friendly" form, indicating the user's computer platform, browser version, and more! Check it out!

  • User Report
    Sep 9, 2000

    Besides basic browser identification (type, version), Netscape users can also see an extensive list of every mimeType and every plugin on your computer. Select one from the pulldown menu and even *MORE* information is displayed in the box. Finally, such additional details as screen width, color depth, and how many sites you have visited so far finish of an incredible display of pure JavaScript power. Wow!
