Gut gemeint, aber wer meinen frisch heruntergeladenen nagelneuen Seamonkey-Browser al veraltete Software abtut und diesen Blödsinn auch noch per Script über viele andere Seiten verbreitet, hat keine gute Wertung verdient. Gut, dass mein unkomfortabler Browser die Anzeieg solchen Unsinns mit einem Mausklick unterbindet.
Safe website, use it in my website :)

Safe website.
The website says, "This service is an opportunity to inform your visitors unobtrusively to switch to a newer browser." Apparently it serves scripts to client websites. This is not a website suitable for children.

What the website says and does actually: "This service is an opportunity to inform your visitors unobtrusively to switch to a newer browser." "Many internet users are still using very old, out-dated browsers – most of them for no actual reason. Switching to a newer browser is better for them and for you as a web-designer." While the service is useful and improves computer security and awareness it is far from being perfect or complete. I would recommend it to users and will enable this by default on client computers, however I do not need it myself... browser-update.org does not have to be enabled to view or use any sites that is using it. browser-update.org uses counters from webmasterpro.de https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/webmasterpro.de
At first it may look suspicious (why would someone need to have some website update their browser, don't modern browsers have update functionality built-in?) but it seems to be a genuine site built by an organization that supports Internet security. When the user clicks to update, it really does take them to the legitimate (official) browser site.
This one seems like a good idea and ultimately can lead to all kinds of trouble.. In THEORY everyone should run an updated browser. In REALITY it isn't that simple. Newer isn't always better and many of the best browsers(namely PaleMoon) don't engage in version number inflation. Many big name browsers(ie: Chrome, Failfox) label even the most minor .01 update a major new release to essentially fool people into thinking that they are on the leading edge.. Then what happens is when people run an honest browser(ie: PaleMoon) the dumb version number check thinks that it is old. When push comes to shove in tech the advice to ALWAYS update is dead wrong. One should update MOST of the time and only after checking to see if the update is any good. Then add in other complaints found in other ratings( some may need translating) and this one is getting a light-red and getting blocked.
Datenbank werden schlecht gehalten, also ich nutzte ein Chromium Custom Build der aktueller ist den man bekommt und der sei angeblich nicht aktuell. (Stable Release) Chrome 45.0.2454.85 zur der Zeit ich hab aber Chrome 45.0.2454.87 Tag
