hi ...

welcome at TSDN ...

besides the os- and browser-information (including plugins, and you cannot really rely on them because that can be spoofed) you cannot retrieve such information ... and that is good ... imagine a website that retrieves the information about your installed software ... that would be a serious break of your privacy ...

kind regards
