A Very Special Message to IE6 Users

The AD Warning
I am using IE ver 8 and am getting this warning. Will it disappear after time? Thanks
Dave
IE 8 shouldn't have the warning
I apologize to anyone receiving the warning who is not using IE6. The warning is triggered by the text "MSIE 6" in the User-Agent string. You can view your user agent here: http://www.whatismyip.com/tools/user-agent-info.asp This method can be flawed because some users are behind caching proxies which request the page once, then serve it up to all users regardless of their User Agent. You can test if this is the case by adding some unique information to the request, such as: http://skyvector.com/?blahblah=asdf1234 Of course, you have to change it whenever you want to force your proxy to fetch a clean version. It is impossible to cache pages protected by encryption. You can add an 's' to http to visit the encrypted version of SkyVector. https://skyvector.com/ (you may get a warning about mixing secure/insecure items) I also suspect that some internet security software packages which claim to anonymize you might interfere with your user-agent string. You would see that upon visiting the user-agent link above. Hope this helps, -dave

Very classy. I like it. As
Very classy. I like it. As far as implementation goes though, why not take advantage of IE's conditional comments feature? Much less messy than relying on the user-agent. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms537512(VS.85).aspx (!--[if lt IE 7]) ...do your IE stuff here.... (![endif]--) Note: replace ( ) with < >

IE8
Dave I am running IE8 and did not get the Airworthiness Directive messege. Very clever btw. However the flight planning feature did not work with IE8. Right clicking over an airport and then clicking "plan" did not make the flight plan box pop up. If I opened the flight plan box the airports were there but no pink line etc. I just downloaded Firefox and it works fine with that. I am no techie for sure but it seems any version of IE might have issues with Sky Vector. Great site. Bob

Have a heart, dude....
"We realize that anyone using IE6 in the year 2010 must be doing so for deeply religious reasons. Faith often defies reason, and we do not wish to offend any believers. What we would suggest, however, is installing Along-side IE6, an alternate browser such as Firefox or Chrome. You don't have to make it your Default Browser and you can use it just for sites like SkyVector that work much better in it. Surely He will forgive such minor transgressions as long as you use strictly IE6 on the Sabbath." Real nice. Like those of us who 'get it' wouldn't have done something by now if we could. Surely by now you are aware that some users in certain corners of the DoD are still saddled with IE6, and cannot control which version available, or when they will push an upgrade, so we can all join the enlightened masses basking in the rapture of IE8... Great site, except for the missed attempt at satire...

Awesome!

IE6, Not for Nav.
Dave, Since you already have a generic "Not for Flight Planning/Navigation" disclaimer, why is a special AD necessary for IE6? I use Firefox, but still get the AD. Regardless, I find SkyVector very handy for preliminary planning. Thanks! Mike

You shouldn't see the warning.
Only IE6 users should see that. Visit http://mybrowserinfo.com/ to see what your browser is claiming to be.
anonymous
I still see the warning
My Browser is: Your Browser User Agent String is Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.4) Gecko/20100611 (CK-zz) Firefox/3.6.4 yet I still get the AD.

The latest scan has IFR Enroute chart issues with the legend
The paper copy of the chart does not have these issues, but the legend under both Example of Grouping and Airspace information has issues with In Canada - indicates Class B Airspace above 12,500' on all Enroute Low charts. The white hashing through the light brown fill is missing from the digital scan on Skyvector. I've tried Internet Explorer 6.0, and Safari 5.0. I don't know if using other browsers makes those visible (hence the reason for the Internet Explorer 6.0 warning), since I have Internet Explorer 6.0 at work and can't change that, and Safari 5.0 at home. Similarly the blue arrows and bearings in the Example of Grouping shows a lighter blue. The body of the charts does not show any issue with color or fill regarding either item. So something went wrong when you scanned the legend.
Dave
Good catch
It's not your browser. There was an error rendering the PDF's to raster. We'll have this fixed soon.

I dont think many are holding
I dont think many are holding out on purpose. My work laptop still has ie6 due to company intranet apps. No need to rewrite perfectly functional internal websites just because Microsoft decided to change things. Installing firefox was the answer. Still, it's strange to get a new laptop with win7 removed for XP.

While I agree that IE6 is
While I agree that IE6 is something that should go away, it's not always possible. For example, one of my machines is a thin client where IE6 is the latest version that's available. They're still shipping as NEW, thin clients that have XPe on them and won't run newer versions of IE. :-( Sometimes you can get alternate browsers to install, sometimes not...
