As the title. We need to keep the basic $is_this, $is_that globals for back-compat but can introduce another global that would hold all needed info about the current web browser, device, versions, etc.

Have you considered WURFL? It looks like the code is AGPL, but the data file has a new license, so I'm not sure if it's compatible with WordPress' license.

Replying to kurtpayne:

Yes, that was one of the first places I checked. It seems we are "explicitly forbidden" to use their xml data file, so I didn't download it. However it seems one individual can install the app (WURFL), update the data file and test our browser detection with it.
