Yes, you are exactly right. A Javascript client. It would work exactly like all the other clients,
the algorithm would be exactly the same. We would just favor it using a more optimized pattern
domain to allow for faster download and lighter processing. Im thinking a few KB max.

Just to make sure I understand correctly, do you mean a piece of
Javascript software that runs in a browser, downloads the current
DeviceMap device data set and uses that to classify the browser based
on its User-Agent?

If yes, I'd rather call this a "javascript client" as that could also
run server-side in environments like Node.js besides the very
interesting client-only setup that you suggest.
