Solution 2

That’s because IE11 uses different User-Agent strings from previous versions and the old jQuery.browser is not aware of it. Actually it lies more than before:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Trident/7.0; rv:11.0) like Gecko

you can use a more reliable tool like WhichBrowser.

Solution 3

See Synthy answer from Stackoverflow

var matched, browser;

    // Use of jQuery.browser is frowned upon.
    // More details: http://api.jquery.com/jQuery.browser
    // jQuery.uaMatch maintained for back-compat
    jQuery.uaMatch = function( ua ) {
        ua = ua.toLowerCase();

        var match = /(chrome)[ \/]([\w.]+)/.exec( ua ) ||
            /(webkit)[ \/]([\w.]+)/.exec( ua ) ||
            /(opera)(?:.*version|)[ \/]([\w.]+)/.exec( ua ) ||
            /(msie) ([\w.]+)/.exec( ua ) ||
            ua.indexOf("compatible") < 0 && /(mozilla)(?:.*? rv:([\w.]+)|)/.exec( ua ) ||
            [];

        return {
            browser: match[ 1 ] || "",
            version: match[ 2 ] || "0"
        };
    };

    matched = jQuery.uaMatch( navigator.userAgent );
    browser = {};

    if ( matched.browser ) {
        browser[ matched.browser ] = true;
        browser.version = matched.version;
    }

    // Chrome is Webkit, but Webkit is also Safari.
    if ( browser.chrome ) {
        browser.webkit = true;
    } else if ( browser.webkit ) {
        browser.safari = true;
    }

    jQuery.browser = browser;

Note: Use and implement solution 1 because this method fully tested our system.
