We only officially support using the browscap-php library. Other methods of loading the files are not supported, but we'll do our best to help when time permits.
You can visit our wiki page on Using Browscap to find a library to use for your programming language. Libraries exist for Perl, Python, ASP, C#, Pascal, ColdFusion, Ruby, and Java (although none are officially supported).
Downloading the INI files here implies you agree to our fair usage policy. Any repeat attempts to download the files will be banned. We highly recommend that you request the version URL and compare your current version against the latest version before requesting the download URL.
We have implemented rate limiting and banning with the following rules:
We do not offer previous versions of the files. If you require a previous version, you must build the files yourself for the appropriate tag. Reading the Browscap wiki may help.
