Why are you doing all that? Just offer the desktop version or Mobil version and be done with it. You dont need to figure out dev_caps in such detail.

Because I still believe in the ideals of responsive web design. If a desktop user wants to use my site in a tiny window (maybe to tile it next to another window), they should still be able to use keyboard shortcuts. And if a user with a large screen wants to use touch interaction (maybe they have a Surface Studio), they should be able to.

There's no reason to make multiple sites each with their own flaws, when you can just make one site that can do anything.
