How to detect IE when on IE11

P: 12
As from the IE11 onwards they removed msie from the useragent string, how can we detect we are on the internet explorer from the JavaScript?

donít rely on the User Agent string. instead use Feature Detection (if object has property, call object property).

I agree with above poster, you may use jQuery libray like Modernizr ,etc to find out whether a feature is supported by the browser or not.
