[resolved] Mobile Browsers Being Rejected (2 posts)

    Heya,

    I'm currently trying to use this on a clients site to warn off all early browsers that lack css & html5 support. Works brilliantly on desktop. When I get onto mobile it still blocks it though, I've tried this on Chrome & Safari on mobile. Any ideas?

    Thanks, Luke

    Certain Android devices (not even versions, and particularly Samsung's) have decided to have their default browsers identify themselves as early versions of Safari, I have no idea why. The safest thing is to not block any version of Chrome or Safari (ie, allow any webkit browser version), which should avoid the false positives on mobile. Fortunately, very, very few users are stuck on critically old versions of Chrome or Safari.
