When you install the script on your site, you can
decide how much force you want to use to convince your users to switch
away from the dark side:
Level 1: Gentle Encouragement Rating:
Visitors using IE see a message encouraging them to download
Firefox (with a download link) running across the top of the page.

Update: Xavier sent us this
modified version of level 2 that will only show the splash page
occasionally. Download it here and see a live demo here.
Level 3 will not allow people using IE past a splash
page. This level is very useful for sites that are not IE6 compatible.
And there's never been a more important moment to switch people to
Firefox. Can you handle it? (At least try it for a day to see how good
it feels.) Unfortunately, level 3 is a little too intense for the
Adsense policies, so for this level you'll have to use a regular,
non-Adsense link to download Firefox.

How to install the Explorer
above your regular html on a webpage. When an IE user visits the site,
the script will display a block of HTML encouraging them to switch to
Installation of Explorer Destroyer varies depending on
how your blog or website works. The instructions below should work for
regular html pages. If your site runs on PHP or another language, you
may need to do things differently.
STEP 1: Download Explorer
Destroyer and unzip the file. Pick which level you want to install and
open the html file for that level in an html or text editor. See
explorerdestroyer.com for demos of each level.
STEP 2: Grab the
file for the front page of your site and open it in an html or text
editor. You should save a copy of the original file in case something
STEP 3: Copy the entire contents of the script file
and paste it into your HTML. Where you paste it is crucial. The easiest
way to do this is to copy the contents of the script file, select the
tag in your current page and paste the script over it. That will replace
your BODY tag with the correct BODY tag for the script and will place
all the script contents where they need to be.
STEP 4: Insert
your Adsense referral code into your html. In each of the three levels
there's a section of code that displays the 'Get Firefox' button. This
code is also how Google tracks your referrals. You need to replace this
code with the code for a button from your own Adsense account. To find
where your Adsense button should go, look for the grey comment text that
and ends with
To get your own
referral button, login to Adsense and click on the 'Referrals' tab. Then
click on the 'Firefox' tab and copy the code for one of the buttons. We
suggest using the medium-size square buttons.
STEP 5: Optional:
customize the html. You can make any changes you'd like to the HTML that
displays when IE users come to your site. Adding a personal message
from you is a great way to convince your readers to switch.
6: Test it. Visit the page in Internet Explorer and make sure everything
is working like a dream.

into WordPress is very simple. From the Dashboard, click on
'Presentation', then go to the Theme Editor. In the list of files for
your theme, click on "Header", then replace the tag with the
ExplorerDestroyer script as normal.
Note: If these instructions
seem too difficult or if you have a blogging account that doesn't allow
you to edit the site code, you can still switch people to Firefox and
earn Google referral money. Just sign up for Google adsense and paste
grab the code that they provide for the switch Firefox buttons. You can
paste this into blog entries or the sidebar for your site. It won't be
as devastatingly effective as Explorer Destroyer, but it still helps the
