PHP web site is "run" on web hosting server.

It can get info of the hosting server easily. But PHP only "know" you / your computer from your browser.

This could create security breach if your browser "tell the world" your computer settings !

Β 

There was an old method to do this, LOWEST your IE browser security level, and run ActiveX.

This means everyone can put script on your computer and execute it.

Thank you for telling me this, I almost forgot web server and web client are different concepts than the one I familiar with - native Windows app development.

No wonder the PhpSysInfo cannot display client's PC info.Β
