Detecting which versions of which browsers are being used

Several browsers are used in our organization. How can I detect which browser and which version users are using without them having to open their browser? I was thinking of sending them an e-mail with a button to click. Then a script should run that would check the browser version and sends an automatic e-mail with the information. Is this feasible?
Sure. That sounds like a feasible way of doing it. I am sure that you can find the proper Windows Registry Keys to check (this will require some research). There are both @ and LotusScript methods of reading from the registry.
