I was wondering if there was a site that has a comparison between the newest version of PHP and the previous ones.  Specifically, I'd like to know more about the newest version's browser detection capabilities.

Thanks! :)

New functions are added to PHP5, and PHP5 has better OOP.

Browser detection is something that really needs to be done client side. The best php can do is check any sent headers which are pretty unreliable.
