About the API

Brief History

The WhatIsMyBrowser.com User Agent Parser started being built in 2010 along with the website.

In August 2014 we launched the API to provide external access to the parser.

Components of the API

The main aspect is user agent parsing; including whether or not the agent software is up to date.

We also let you access the parser in a "batch" mode. You can also get the latest version numbers of web browsers and plugins via the API.

We also have a JavaScript based library in beta; to be launched soon!
