An initiative by websites to inform users to update their web browser

Warn insecure browsers with special message


In light of the sever bug in Chrome, Edge, Opera and Vivaldi that is exploited in the wild (High CVE-2022-4262: Type Confusion in V8), we are notifying these browsers on all sites that have configured the script with insecure: true.

To better explain to users the urgency we improved the message in the notification

Your browser has severe security issues. You could get a virus by just viewing a malicious website.

Please download one of these up-to-date, free and excellent browsers:

This is so far only in English and German but we plan to translate it into other languages as well.

The message for insecure browsers can me modified specifying {"text":{"insecure":"Your browser is insecure!"}}, see customize.
