Hi Friends,

Please suggest me to recognize the browser microsoft edge with any c# call.

I am tried with below.

System.Web.HttpBrowserCapabilities browser = HttpContext.Current.Request.Browser;


What I have tried:

System.Web.HttpBrowserCapabilities browser = HttpContext.Current.Request.Browser;

This is how you do it, How to: Detect Browser Types and Browser Capabilities in ASP.NET Web Forms[^], although my version of Edge reports Request.Browser.Browser as Chrome so it does not work 100% as expected.

Just a note, it is bad practice to check for browser in c#. I'd suggest seeing if you can do what you need done a different way.
The Issue is that the HttpContext.Current.Request.Browser; detects Edge as Chrome browser.

So for the solution you can try Request.UserAgent to get the browser name, it will give string like this

"Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/87.0.4280.141 Safari/537.36 Edg/87.0.664.75"

The Edg denotes the Edge browser with also version name after "/". In this way you can get every browser user agent string and identify the browser name if not works for Request.Browser object.

Also Code to Identify :

if (Request.UserAgent.IndexOf("Edg") > -1 )
// Edge Browser

That wouldn't detect the version of Edge which was around when this question was posted.

And browser sniffing is still a very bad idea. :)
