Wow. This is messed up. Here is a table of the browsers I have at my disposal and the returned value from the JavaScript variable “navigator.appVersion”.

Browser navigator.appVersion
Chrome 5.0 5.0
Opera 10.00 9.80
IE 8.0 4.0
IE 7.0 4.0
IE 6.0 4.0
Safari 4.0 5.0
Safari 3.2 5.0
Firefox 3.6 5.0
Firefox 3.5 5.0
Firefox 2.0 5.0

Ok browser makers. Let’s start over. I don’t think any site is using the navigator.appVersion anymore so now is as good of time as ever to start fresh. What do you say?
