SourceForge.net: killie6: Is this unethical?
Killie6 is a website plug-in to achieve nothing short of tricking your website visitor into downloading a more recent version of Internet Explorer. This plug-in activates only on Internet Explorer 6.
It pops a fake Information Bar at the top of the screen, trying to impersonate Windows itself, I suppose, and prompts the user to download IE7. The wording is true enough:
To help protect your security, you must immediately download latest [sic] version of Internet Explorer. Click here to proceed.
It’s not lying, I guess.
