Browser-Update.org

An initiative by web designers to inform users about browser-updates

This service is an opportunity to inform your visitors unobtrusively to switch to a newer browser.

Many internet users are still using very old, out-dated browsers – most of them for no actual reason. Switching to an newer browser is better for them and for you as a webdesigner.

47521 sites are using the Browser-Update.org script.

3542945 visitors have already upgraded their browser.

How it works

  1. Include our small javascript notification on your website
  2. Visitors with out-dated browser will be informed by a little, undisturbing bar, that his browser is not up-to-date and it is recommended to update. (Test the notification bar!)
    Your browser (Internet Explorer 6) is out of date. It has known security flaws and may not display all features of this and other websites. Learn how to update your browser
  3. By clicking the bar, he will get to an info page with arguments why to change/update and some browser choices.
  4. If the visitor ignores the advice, it won't appear again for some time.
