Javascript Question

Pick up the Android version in the browser by Javascript

I'm building a web app and wanting to disable transitions effects on Android devices under version 3.0.

Is there anyway to pick up the Android version number by Javascript in the browser? If so how?

Answer
function getAndroidVersion(ua) {
    ua = (ua || navigator.userAgent).toLowerCase(); 
    var match = ua.match(/android\s([0-9\.]*)/);
    return match ? match[1] : false;
};

getAndroidVersion(); //"4.2.1"
parseInt(getAndroidVersion(), 10); //4
parseFloat(getAndroidVersion()); //4.2
