I've designed a web site that for one reason or another only looks good in Internet Explorer 5 or higher
Since most of my visitors are currently using IE5+, I am not too concerned about this except for the fact that I'd like to "force" all my visitors to use or upgrade their browsers to IE5+ before they can view the site.
I've seen this feature used on other web sites whereby they block the viewing of certain web pages based on the browser (ie. Netscape 4.7, IE4, etc.) and was wondering how I would go about doing this for my own web site?
Preferably, so that I don't have to update each page individually, I would like to use some kind of script that I can add to my directory that will run whenever a user visits any one of my web pages, detects the browser, and if it is not IE 5 or greater, shows a web page stating that IE5+ is required to view the information. Other suggestions are also appreciated.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
P.S. -> I personally support browser alternatives like Netscape, Mozilla, Opera however the site was built in a rush and I didn't have a chance to follow the open standards and don't have the time to go back and fix it
Thank you for understanding.
