Browser sniffing is a technique used to determine the web browser a visitor is using, and then serve browser-appropriate content.

This is done in order to help ensure consistent display of content across different browsers. While different browsers may display the same page differently, browser sniffing can help to circumvent any incompatibilities.

By detecting the web browser, developers can serve specific code that is designed to work with that particular browser. As a result, this improves the overall user experience by ensuring that the content is displayed correctly.
