Any function to show the currently in use browser for Qlik Sense?

Hi,

Is there any function in Qlik Sense that can show the current browser being used? I have tried using ClientPlatform() but it's throwing out this:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/72.0.3626.109 Safari/537.36

Basically, I want to display a text object if a person is using any web browser other than Google Chrome asking them to switch to Chrome. Any kind of help is appreciated. Thank you so much.

Hi,

Qlik Sense ClientPlatform() function uses JS navigator.userAgent method, which returns exactly what you see. For more reliable methods I believe you need to build an extension.

Hope this helps.
