jQuery(document).ready(function () {
console.log(navigator.appVersion);


}


jQuery(document).ready(function () {
 
    var OSName = "Unknown OS";
    if (navigator.appVersion.indexOf("Win") != -1) OSName = "Windows";
    else if (navigator.appVersion.indexOf("Mac") != -1) OSName = "MacOS";
    else if (navigator.appVersion.indexOf("X11") != -1) OSName = "UNIX";
    else if (navigator.appVersion.indexOf("Linux") != -1) OSName = "Linux";
 
    console.log('Your OS is: ' + OSName);
