Browser Detection in Flash

To anyone who knows Flash!

I'm new to flash and currently playing around with having it find out details about the system its being loaded on using the System.capabilities strings.
Currently have my first movie up at this link here
I was wondering though if its possible to have Flash detect the browser in use if there is one. (I know you can tell the difference between IE and everything else by if its Plugin or ActiveX, but I want to be able to tell the difference between say, Netscape and Firefox. Or Firefox and Safari.)
If not, is there a way of getting Javascript or otherwise to detect the browser as on most sites and pass that information on the Flash movie? Possibly using a special URL string?
If neither of these, will have to make two different movies if I want to show different content in different browsers?

Thanks for the help. :)
