How can I show the Jira announcement banner only to logged in users who use Internet Explorer browser?

We are using Jira 6.1 and our default Company browser is IE 8.0 . I want that only users that still use IE with Jira will see the Announcementbanner. Is this possible. If yes, how?

IE conditional comments work fine in the announcement banner, eg:

<!--[if IE 8]>
<div style="background-color:  #FFFF00; padding: 2px; text-align: center; color: black;"> 
<strong>IE8</strong> -
	I wouldn't let my dog use IE8, get a better browser.
</div>
<![endif]-->

Thank you very much, that's the way!

Hi Rob,

You could try using javascript in the announcement banner so it only shows up when the browser is IE.

But as I don't have any decent javascript experience I wouldn't have a clue about which javascript you need exactly.

I did find the following question that might help you on your way:
