About the API

Brief History

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

In July 2014 we launched the API to provide external access to the user agent parser.

We continue to develop and expand the user agent 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.

The API provides the latest version numbers for popular web browsers, operating systems and plugins.

The API can be used to regularly download the entire user agent database as a dump file. You can then import it into your own database to be searched or analysed as you require.
