good but needs more timely updates.
By , for WP 3.8

This is a useful plugin to make sure your readers get the optimum experience by using the latest browsers. However at the time of download (Jan 11 2014), the plugin itself needed an update. It didn't recognize the latest browser versions so was recommending old browsers.

Despite the few problems I had with this plugin, I find it overall sufficient for my needs, and the browser rejection is likely only to come up on browsers that truly need updating or on IE10 if the user is using Windows 8. In the scheme of things, it's a small inconvenience not to have the exact features I want, so I rate this plugin 4 stars.

Here's what I would like:
It would be helpful if web admins could pick the preferred browsers to display instead of the plugin automatically showing the latest ones to website viewers when they get the popup. For example, I recommend Safari but there's no display for it on the rejector screen.

Also the option to close the rejector window did not work on the front page of the website, even with the right options to do this tasked were active. However, that might be part of IE10's programming (thakns Microsoft). :/
