PMK "I hate IE"¶
Displays a fake IE "infobar" in Internet Explorer browsers (Similar to the annoying ActiveX infobar) with user defined text and link. Could be used to try persuading IE6 users to upgrade. Customizable "Hate level", so you can decide which IE versions should display the infobar.
Tested in IE5.5, IE6, IE7 & IE8 with both Strict and Quirks mode.
Differences between this and a real infobar:¶
The real infobar attaches itself to a new viewport, making it appear at the top of the browser window until the user closes it.
The fake infobar is attached to the current viewport, so when you scroll the page, the infobar scrolls too. This was done to ensure maximum compatibility with existing scripts on the page where the infobar appears.
