Getting Browser Information
#1
Is there some way to record the type/version of browser the user is using when submitting a form? I've gotten a few submissions that seemingly bypass all the validation rules (PHP), with no explanation. I'd like to narrow it down further. Thinking that maybe they are using some ancient browser or something?

I would think you can get the browser info on page load and put it in a hidden field that gets submitted with your form.

Check out http://php.net/manual/en/function.get-browser.php

That has some sample code on getting user-agent data.
