Meet BrowserSupportCheck

BrowserSupportCheck detects when a customer is trying to access your website using an old and obsolete browser. Once the web store visitor enters the website they view a message saying that they are running an unsupported browser version and gives an easy choice to upgrade to a supported browser. Messages are multilingual and customizable, so you can use your imagination.

List of Unsupported Browsers

Nowadays modern browsers feature automatic updates. This means that all updates get going on the background while the person on the computer does not really realize that their browser has been updated. Unlike new browsers, old and obsolete browsers do not offer this feature, so people using them might not be aware why websites seem broken, which only takes away from their pleasure of surfing the web. BrowserSupportCheck provides a detection tool, which notifies anybody visiting your website with an obsolete browser. BrowserSupportCheck also suggests a replacement and gives an easy access to a new version download. Here is how you can set it up:
