Remind users to update their browser in an unobtrusive way.

browser-update

Many internet users are still using very old, out-dated browsers – most of them for no actual reason. We want to remind these unobtrusively to update their browser.

Goals

  1. Provide webdesigners a unified way to tell the user that they need a newer browser to use this website in all its beauty.
  2. Improve the security, comfort and overall experiance of users by convincing them to update
  3. But: do not annoy or lock out users

How to use

Go to browser-update.org, choose the browsers you want to be notified and embed the code into your website.

Unobtrusive

Unobtrusive here means:

  • We take care not to erroneously notify users by constantly tweaking the detection code
  • users of small niche browsers are not notified, users who have no possibility to update are not notified
  • We do not block the users form using a website in any way
  • The website can be used without any additional step
  • The notification will only appear once a day by default
  • If the user activly closes the notification, it will reappear after a week
