The browser.cnf file

The browser.cnf file is installed automatically in the server data directory when you install Domino®. It contains configuration settings for browsers used to render Domino® Web applications. Specifically, this file is used by @BrowserInfo to determine browser properties.

There are two types of directives in this file: Property and Rule. The property directive defines a browser property that can be accessed by @BrowserInfo. The Rule directive specifies a regular expression pattern which is used to match the browser User-Agent header.

Typically, Web application developers will make use of this file to ensure that their applications work properly on the Domino® Web server. However, because of the file's location in the server data directory, it is likely that you, as the Domino® administrator, will need to make any necessary modifications.
