Explorer Destroyer

It’s been a long while since I preached to everyone about switching over to Firefox from Internet Explorer. It was such a hot topic with me at the time, that I even preached about it a second time.

Well, it’s time for me to talk about it again, because I just installed a nifty little script called Explorer Destroyer. It’s a way to funnel IE-users to Firefox, and it works. According to the guys at, this is the nuts and bolts of it:

  • Script autodetects IE
  • Displays switch splash screen to IE users
  • Switches people to Firefox
  • Three levels of seriousness
  • Google gives you referral money for switches
  • Infuriates Microsoft
  • If you’re still using IE, then you’re going to get a pretty little message. If you don’t use IE, good for you, here’s a screenshot of what the message looks like... or better yet, go see the site on someone’s computer that still uses IE.

    So have you switched yet?
