I have no idea what you mean by "running python in a browser". I can
only guess you mean as cgi or mod_python-skript?
works for you.
Or you could check for certain environment variables that are present
when running as CGI or mod_python skript, but not knowing *what* you do
can only lead to educated guesses at best.
