Using this plugin, you can choose minimum version numbers for the major browsers. These are the browsers supported by this plugin:
Users who don't meet the minimum requirements are shown a modal window suggesting that they update their current browser, or install a new browser - complete with download links! NOTE: You must enable each browser you wish to provide links to - by checkboxes located in the plugin configuration. By default - only the current browser is offered as a download option.
Administrators can enforce these minimum requirements by disabling the "Continue" option, which forces the users to meet the requirements by keeping the site just out of reach behind the modal window.
Aside from version and continue options, administrators can choose to use the default styling or provide their own styling via their template CSS, choose to disable the background overlay, and set the opacity of the background overlay.
For those with multilingual sites, all of the text is set by Joomla language files so you won't be leaving anyone behind.
The Demo site URL has very high (non-existent) version numbers set, so it will display for all users using the targeted browsers.
Version 1.4 - Joomla 3.0 compatibility update
Version 1.5 - jQuery compatibility update
Version 1.6 - Added mobile exclusion options
4/26/2012 - Joomla 1.6/1.7 availability and support withdrawn.

All plugins - language files are located in /administrator/language. The file you're looking for is /administrator/language/en-GB.plg_system_browserupdatewarning.ini
For example, tell everyone to update outdated versions for chrome, firefox and safari but tell internet explorer users to use firefox that the site doesnt display correctly with internet explorer.
On my old J1.5 Site I used some other extension which used a warning message for outdated IE Versions. This extension gives me the possibility to choose minimum requirements for the main browsers.
That's what I was looking for a long time, as my site is just a private personal project it's easier to display a warning to the user instead of making the layout compatible to stoneage browsers.
Really fine work.
Tried out some things but did not work out.
This is the "Browser Update Warning" extension, not the "Website Requires Some Other Browser than IE" extension.
Many corporate users cannot make changes to their machines (like installing other browsers) - a situation I run into weekly.
There is just a small issue that the css not better work with older browser like ie6 to show warning, as we know this plugin work is to warn people that they are using old browser so the warning must look better and at place in older browsers.
And I haven't found the file to do modification in css or main file of the plugin? where it get installed I am not able to see it in plugin system folder?
Overall its working fine and able to show all the download options and continue if people want.
The plugin css file can be found in /media/plg_system_browserupdatewarning/css/BrowserUpdateWarning.css
I wouldn't suggest editing that file though, as your changes would be lost if you installed a new version. I would suggest, however, that you copy the contents of that file into your template css file and make changes there. Then you can just turn the plugin css off in configuration.
I will do more testing for older browsers.
