Explorer Destroyer: tweaking it to work on Blogger

Explorer Destroyer - Switch to Firefox, Make money from Adsense Referral

I've just set up Explorer Destroyer on my blog. Their instructions are good, but if you use Blogger to host your blog, and you have the little Blogger bar across the top of your page, you'll need to make one tweak to get the Explorer Destoryer box to show up completely. I've only done this for (and it probably only applies to) the Level 1 version. In the Level 1 script code, look for the following line (currently it's line 150 in the HTML they supply):

<div style="padding: 20px; background-color: #ffffbb; font-family: arial; font-size: 15px; font-weight: normal; color: #111111; line-height: 17px;"&gt;

Add a top margin to account for the Blogger bar, thus changing the line to:

<div style="margin-top: 30px; padding: 20px; background-color: #ffffbb; font-family: arial; font-size: 15px; font-weight: normal; color: #111111; line-height: 17px;"&gt;

so does it work now? i just used ie to surf your page and nothing special happened - no warning or splash. the same thing with my blog

palmsout.blogspot.com

i made the changes to the code you said, and still nothing. could you test mine? because explorer destroyer doesnt seem to work on the computer i'm using for ie testing, not on barely any sites, including explorerdestroyer.com . I normally run mac, so i'm forced to use the old pc downstairs to test... and i dont trust it. I mean they did create this code to work in older versions of IE, right? I know nothing else ever works in IE, but this has gotta...

thnks, h.

Hi,

I've been looking for the explorerdestroyer script, but the website is down (seems permenantly!). Would it be possible for you to send me a copy of the script itself?

Thanks,

As far as I can tell, Explorer Destroyer site is not working, and I'm not using it, or have it anymore. I still despise IE, but I just basically ignore it.

Thanks, Chris. I've managed to find the script on a Google Group Anyway. FYI, I don't actually plan to use this for a production purpose (I value my visitors' freedom, even if I *do* recommend Firefox!), I'd just like to try it out to see how effective it actually is for a few days.

Cheers,
