Why would you want to do that? Not everybody has or wants Chrome.

Look at the $_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'] and try to figure out which one Chrome uses. The change all the time and the user has control over what is sent or whether it is sent.

If there's a feature that a browser doesn't have, test for that particular feature rather than for the browser.

yeah, i can't imagine anyone blocking an entire browser market from their website. It's really not that hard to support all browsers, even IE6/7.

Just a quick note $_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'] is going to give you a nasty little string like Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.11 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/23.0.1271.97 Safari/537.11 so you will need to employ some regex and tinker with all of the browsers to see exactly what each browser sends as the agent string. Personally, I think it is a terrible idea no matter what reason you provide.
