  Description     : browscap modules for Drupal 6

The Browscap module provides a replacement for PHP's get_browser() 
function. get_browser() is difficult (or impossible) to configure for 
most users in shared webhosting situations, and requires attention to 
keep the underlying data (browscap.ini) up-to-date. This module avoids 
the configuration issue by storing the data in a database table, and 
the freshness issue by automatically retrieving the latest data on a 
weekly basis (if cron.php is run regularly).

Also, statistics on browsers visiting the site may be captured by 
enabling monitoring in the browscap settings.
