How to Find / Detect Browser using Javascript

Many time we want to write browser specific code.For that we have to detect the browser so that we can apply particular settings for that browser.
This can be done using javascript.

Bellow is the javascript which can be used.

var BrowserDetect = {
	init: function () {
		this.browser = this.searchString(this.dataBrowser) || "An unknown browser";
		this.version = this.searchVersion(navigator.userAgent)
			|| this.searchVersion(navigator.appVersion)
			|| "an unknown version";
		this.OS = this.searchString(this.dataOS) || "an unknown OS";
	},
	searchString: function (data) {
		for (var i=0;i<data.length;i++)	{
			var dataString = data[i].string;
			var dataProp = data[i].prop;
			this.versionSearchString = data[i].versionSearch || data[i].identity;
			if (dataString) {
				if (dataString.indexOf(data[i].subString) != -1)
					return data[i].identity;
			}
			else if (dataProp)
				return data[i].identity;
		}
	},
	searchVersion: function (dataString) {
		var index = dataString.indexOf(this.versionSearchString);
		if (index == -1) return;
		return parseFloat(dataString.substring(index+this.versionSearchString.length+1));
	},
	dataBrowser: [
		{
			string: navigator.userAgent,
			subString: "Chrome",
			identity: "Chrome"
		},
		{ 	string: navigator.userAgent,
			subString: "OmniWeb",
			versionSearch: "OmniWeb/",
			identity: "OmniWeb"
		},
		{
			string: navigator.vendor,
			subString: "Apple",
			identity: "Safari",
			versionSearch: "Version"
		},
		{
			prop: window.opera,
			identity: "Opera",
			versionSearch: "Version"
		},
		{
			string: navigator.vendor,
			subString: "iCab",
			identity: "iCab"

		{

			subString: "KDE",

			subString: "Firefox",
			identity: "Firefox"

		{
			string: navigator.vendor,
			subString: "Camino",
			identity: "Camino"
		},
		{		// for newer Netscapes (6+)
			string: navigator.userAgent,
			subString: "Netscape",
			identity: "Netscape"

		{
			string: navigator.userAgent,
			subString: "MSIE",
			identity: "Explorer",

		{ 		// for older Netscapes (4-)
			string: navigator.userAgent,
			subString: "Mozilla",
			identity: "Netscape",
			versionSearch: "Mozilla"
		}
	],
	dataOS : [
		{
			string: navigator.platform,
			subString: "Win",
			identity: "Windows"
		},
		{
			string: navigator.platform,
			subString: "Mac",
			identity: "Mac"
		},
		{
			   string: navigator.userAgent,
			   subString: "iPhone",
			   identity: "iPhone/iPod"
	    },
		{
			string: navigator.platform,
			subString: "Linux",
