How to detect in the browser if the user has a local node running?


I’m looking for a way to detect if the user is running a local IPFS node in the browser.
In my specific case i have IPFS companion setup and content requested from IPFS is - via that - already routed through my local node. So i know everything works already, now just detecting that!

I merely want to show a message to the user to install IPFS Companion when no local node is detected.
