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?

This widget could not be displayed.

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:
