Client server is one of the most widely used, universal methods used for exchanging data online.

In order to get a complete support from the server and have good compatibility in between your computer and server, it is important for the user to share some extra information such as the computer’s version, operating system used and also the browser configuration. All these information are important to be known by the server so that it can decide which website is suitable for the user as there are several browsers which are not appropriate and compatible with the technology and design of some websites. Secondly, if the website is not dependent on the browser, it is a better option to conceal the details from the web server.
The information been transferred from the browser of the user to the web server are such as name of the operating system been used in the computer system, version of the browser, name of the browser, its configuration for example depth of the color, display resolution, plug-in, java script’s support and adobe, IP address of the user and other such information about the system.
