    Is there a way to make this message to display big and bold? So it catches their attention.

    Hi Mr Marc,
    I have sent the email to the address you supplied as below.
    matthes134@gmail.com

    Please advise if this is correct

    Yes that is correct Aaron, it looks like our SSO that is using an iframe in the header is causing the issues with the compatibility checker to run.

    Hi Chris and Aaron,

    Thanks for this amazing plugin. I installed it on Moodle 2.8, it doesn't display the notification if I checked against browsers only. I have to check one of the plugins (Java, flash, etc.) to work. Unfortunately, I don't need to check any of the plugin. How we can fix that?

    Also, could you please add checking against IE because most problems comes from older version of IE.

    Thanks
    Chris

    Is this plugin compatible with Moodle 2.9? I was able to get the plugin to install with a success message, but I can't get it to display the message for a user no matter what I set the requirements to. I've tried three different themes: Flexipage, More, and Clean.

    It seems like a really useful plugin in concept, but we would prefer a block display and the ability to check IE versions as well as the others. (Actually, we'd prefer to tell users if they are using anything OTHER than a recent version of Firefox to switch.)

    I'm presuming this plugin is no longer maintained? It falsely reports we don't meet the requirements yet it states in the View Status Page we are on higher versions than required, also doesn't take into account Chrome flash either. Using Moodle 3.0.1.

    Add me to the list of those who'd love to see this maintained, as I think it would be very useful. I stumbled across it after realizing one of our plugins didn't work with Microsoft Edge. However, Edge is not one of the browsers checked.

    I also think this plugin would be really helpful, if well maintened for latest Moodle versions and browsers. In fact, i would like to see this integrated in core.
