YUI user agent detection. Do not fork for a browser if it can be avoided. Use feature detection when you can. Use the user agent as a last resort. For all fields listed as @type float, UA stores a version number for the browser engine, 0 otherwise. This value may or may not map to the version number of the browser using the engine. The value is presented as a float so that it can easily be used for boolean evaluation as well as for looking for a particular range of versions. Because of this, some of the granularity of the version info may be lost. The fields that are @type string default to null. The API docs list the values that these fields can have.
Performs a simple comparison between two version numbers, accounting for standard versioning logic such as the fact that "535.8" is a lower version than "535.24", even though a simple numerical comparison would indicate that it's greater. Also accounts for cases such as "1.1" vs. "1.1.0", which are considered equivalent.
Returns -1 if version a is lower than version b, 0 if they're equivalent, 1 if a is higher than b.
Versions may be numbers or strings containing numbers and dots. For example,
"535.8.10" are acceptable. A version string containing
non-numeric characters, like
"535.8.beta", may produce unexpected results.
-1 if a is lower than b, 0 if they're equivalent, 1 if a is higher than b.
