1. Include the latest jQuery library and IEAlert.js

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.8.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="iealert.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

2. Include IEAlert CSS

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="iealert/style.css" />

3. Call the plugin

	$(document).ready(function() {

4. Options

  support: "ie9" // The modal box will appear on Internet Explorer 9,8,7,6
  title: "your browser is old!" // The title
  text: "Please, update your browser." // The text
  upgradeTitle: "Download" // Upgrade Button Title
  upgradeLink: "http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/" // where the user will be sent when he clicks the Upgrade button
  overlayClose: true // Optionally you can close the modal box by clicking the overlay, the overlayClose option specifies this option. 
  closeBtn: false // Display close button or not

ATTENTION: IE Alert uses the  jQuery.browser() method which has been deprecated since jQuery 1.3 and is removed in 1.9. If needed, it is available as part of the jQuery Migrate plugin. We recommend using feature detection with a library such as Modernizr.
