IE6 Update integrates the IE6 Update JavaScript tool with Drupal, unobtrusively encouraging site users to upgrade Internet Explorer.


  • Mimics the IE information bar to suggest to the user to upgrade their browser,
  • Links to the IE 8 update page so the user can upgrade their browser,
  • The message and link in the information bar is configurable,

As of version 7.x-1.1 and 6.x-1.5, this module is no longer limited to IE6.


IE6 Update's message and link are translatable in both Drupal 6 and 7. A detailed description of how to translate the message displayed to users is available in the README.txt file included with the module.

See this page for a discussion on what separates this module from others like it.

This module was originally developed by James Glasgow of Tribute Media as a less obtrusive alternative to his Seven Up module. It's currently maintained by Eric Peterson.
