    When this add-on is installed, it will detect the browser version your visitor is using and if it is below a certain version, your visitor will see a bar similar to the above.

    The widget is provided by Browser-Update.org.

    If the user clicks the banner they will be taken to their website where they can receive suggestions for a replacement browser.

    I have made the add-on customisable through the Admin CP using various options:

    You can also customise the way it looks including colour schemes etc. by altering the provided BrowserUpdate.css file.

    IMPORTANT: The "test mode enabled" option will permanently enable the Browser Update warning regardless of the browser the visitor is using. As you can see from the first screenshot, I am being warned that Google Chrome 19 is out of date when it clearly isn't. This is because I have test mode enabled.

    If you would like to test how it looks without enabling test mode you can add #test-bu to the end of your URL. e.g. http://www.yourforum.com/index.php#test-bu
