About Device Detection
Device detection empowers a web page to understand a great deal of information about the device that is visiting the site prior to making a decision about the content to send to it. This could include information on browser type and capability, processing power of the device, and screen resolution, to name but three of thousands of categories. Responsive web design alone is not enough.
Device detection is an important facet of personalization but does not require a user to register or share personal preferences. Armed with this information websites can send content that is not only optimized for detailed device specifications but also contextualizes the likely environment of the user, delivering a better user experience.
