While I will defend using browser sniffing to detect specific old versions that are known to have specific limitations .. Would perhaps something like

input.setAttribute('type', 'file')
var supported = input.type === 'file'



I don't think that will work @hallvors – the UA sniff is required because those browsers allow type=file, but it just doesn't work on the page – e.g. Android 1.x renders a normal file input which says "upload disabled" (to the DOM this looks like a normal functional file input).


@hallvors Unfortunately this does not help, for the same reasons @stucox above just explained.
