jQuery.browser claims MSIE 8.0 to be MSIE 6.0 in certain browsers

The jQuery.browser() function fails to determine the correct MSIE version.

User agent string: "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.1; Trident/4.0; Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1) ; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.4506.2152; .NET CLR 3.5.30729)"

I'd recommend to use the browser detection by Douglas Crockford:


It works well in this case.
