Note: As of 2010/05/20, this module appears to no longer be supported. If you as the module maintainer feel this message has been posted in error, please reply to #790322: IE6 warning seems abandoned.
If you are interested in a module with a similar purpose, try IE Destroyer, or any other modules listed in http://groups.drupal.org/node/19573.

IE6 warning displays a block exhorting IE6 users to upgrade their browsers. The block is displayed on every page, but the user can close it with a link on the top right corner of the block. Upon closing the block, a cookie is set so that the block doesn't show anymore.

The idea of this module comes from :
http://blog.peterhaza.no/national-collaboration-to-push-out-internet-exp...

The message displayed in the block can be set by the administrator.

To play well with sites caching the content aggressively, everything is happening client-side: the block is always sent, hidden, and IE6 users have the block shown via Javascript.
