Detect IE 5 or higher

I used this code to alert user to use IE 5 or higher to browse the website.

In the HTML head:
<script type=”text/javascript” language=”JavaScript”>
function detectBrowser()
var browser=navigator.appName;
var b_version=navigator.appVersion;
var version=parseFloat(b_version);
if ((browser!=”Microsoft Internet Explorer” ) || (version<4))
alert(“Please use Internet Explorer to continue”);

In the HTML body:
<body onload=”detectBrowser()”>
