browser-update v1.1.0

Remind users to update their browser in an unobtrusive way.


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.


  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, 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

##More features

  • Translated into >30 languages
  • Giving users reasons why an up-to-date browser is important
  • Only showing browsers that are available for the users operating system.

More infos, our motivation and the features can be found on our web site.

##Browsers to be notified The browsers which are currently notified in the default configuration

##Translations The page currently translated into more than 30 languages. If you want to improve the translations or translate into a new language please see our translation manual.
