Use Case

A very common use case for the Browser Rule is when you know that the content of your popup appears differently from browser to browser and you’d like to create different versions of them for different browsers so you end up with a uniformed look.

Another useful use case would be for websites that sell Software as a Service that one of these happens to not be compatible with certain browsers. In that case, you would want to exclude this particular popup from this browser or include it only on all the others.

Useful Notes

Browsers are identified by what is called a User-Agent String which can be manipulated into anything by advanced users. The result for those users can be dependable to what they have chosen to change it into.
