Referring to this answer from @DA01
Do a significant number of users of your web site use IE8 or earlier and would they be unwilling to upgrade to use your site?
If so, then yes.
Is there a way to find out if users are willing to upgrade their browsers or not?
It could be a problem even for Chrome, Firefox and Opera users where there is an auto-upgrade option, since auto-update feature could be disabled due to some reasons such as
- Some security process has disabled it,
- or User has turned it off to support a certain feature,
- or User has turned it off to reduce network data-usage.
Problem usually is browsers like IE, especially in an corporate environment where auto-update feature is not there.
I want to be able to redirect them towards the download page of that upgraded version so that they can download the latest version of browser.
This is an important information for a product team when they thinking about using a feature of a browser which are available in latest versions but not in older versions and keeping a track of fallbacks for older browsers through multiple releases is not easy.
How do I find out that users are willing to upgrade their browsers?
