How to Check if User is using IE

As a developer, I need today I need to check out that the user is using Internet Explorer or not. Today, I need it most but finally got 3 ways to detect Internet Explorer. All of them are given below.
Check if User is using IE

1. Using jQuery Check if User is using IE:

if ( $.browser.msie) {
  alert( "Hello! This is IE." );

2. Using Conditional  Comment to find if User is using IE:

<!--[if gte IE 8]>
<p>You're using a recent version of Internet Explorer.</p>

<!--[if lt IE 7]>
<p>Hm. You should upgrade your copy of Internet Explorer.</p>

<![if !IE]>
<p>You're not using Internet Explorer.</p>

3. Using Javascript Check if User is using Internet Explorer:

 * Returns the version of Internet Explorer or a -1
 * (indicating the use of another browser).
function getInternetExplorerVersion()
    var rv = -1; // Return value assumes failure.

    if (navigator.appName == 'Microsoft Internet Explorer')
        var ua = navigator.userAgent;
        var re  = new RegExp("MSIE ([0-9]{1,}[\.0-9]{0,})");
        if (re.exec(ua) != null)
            rv = parseFloat( RegExp.$1 );

    return rv;

function checkVersion()
    var msg = "You're not using Internet Explorer.";
    var ver = getInternetExplorerVersion();

    if ( ver > -1 )
        if ( ver >= 8.0 ) 
            msg = "You're using a recent copy of Internet Explorer."
            msg = "You should upgrade your copy of Internet Explorer.";

    alert( msg );

4. Another Javascript If user is using IE:

Internet Explorer sniffer code to add class to body tag for IE version. Can be removed if your using something like Modernizr.
 var ie = (function ()

     var undef,
     v = 3,
         div = document.createElement('div'),
         all = div.getElementsByTagName('i');

     while (
     div.innerHTML = '<!--[if gt IE ' + (++v) + ']><i></i>< ![endif]--


     //append class to body for use with browser support
     if (v > 4)
         $('body').addClass('ie' + v);


There are three ways are given, but from all of them I got the conditional element is more easy to implement on the website.
