You are correct that browser sniffing is "so 1997" and the wrong way to determine whether or not a browser is capable of running certain JS code but there might be specific instances when browser sniffing might be beneficial such as web stats.

That's exactly the point. You can never be 100% confident.
Do not detect browser version at all. This will relieve all your pain.

Or am I wrong?
