You can do this.

do "result = navigator.appName" in browser

at which point the result will contain "Microsoft Internet Explorer" if
thats the browser in use.

result = navigator.userAgent returns..
; Trident/5.0; SLCC2; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR
3.0.30729; Media Center PC 6.0; .NET4.0C; .NET4.0E)
for the version of IE i'm using.

there is also "result = navigator appVersion which for me returns..
5.0 (compatible; MSIE 9.0; Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; Trident/5.0; SLCC2; .NET
CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; Media Center PC 6.0;
.NET4.0C; .NET4.0E)

Didn't test with firefox, didn't test with chrome since the plugin doesn't
work there for me. I'm sure there are quite a few other useful items that
can be queried this way.
