public class HomeController : Controller
    private readonly IBrowserDetector browserDetector;
    public HomeController(IBrowserDetector browserDetector)
        this.browserDetector = browserDetector;
    public IActionResult Index()
        var browser = this.browserDetector.Browser;
        // Use browser object as needed.

        var browser = browserDetector.Browser;
