Can someone explain why Adobe put in the feature:
trace(Capabilities.os); // gets the operating system
and not something like
trace(Capabilities.browser); // gets the browser... this property doesn't exist unfortunately...
I found a way to detect for IE.
Capabilities.playerType; //Returns ActiveX if in IE.
A string that indicates the type of player. This property can have one of the following values:
"StandAlone"for the Flash StandAlone Player
"External"for the Flash Player version used by the external player, or test movie mode..
"PlugIn"for the Flash Player browser plug-in
"ActiveX"for the Flash Player ActiveX Control used by Microsoft Internet Explorer
