After you get the user time zone from users preferences, you can send it as 
a parameter to set_time_zone() method of DateTime.

You can do it in the templates:

[% row.last_modified.set_time_zone(c.user.get('time_zone')).strftime('%F 
%T') %]

(not tested, but it should work)

Don't know how to get the time zone of the user from browser, but I think it 
is not possible. You might need to get the visitor's IP and use a service 
that can tell you his/her country or even city, and maybe there is a module 
that can translate that into DateTime time_zone rformat...
