BrowserWar, version 0.3.1
    Written by Peter Boling and Matt Long <http://www.sagebit.com/> 20081029
    Lisence: MIT

BrowserWar is a Javascript library for detecting a specific browser and displaying custom html in the response to requests from that browser. This library can be imported into a project to detect browsers and/or versions of browsers (hello IE!) and display a message stating that the site is optimized for more modern browsers. "BrowserDetect" tool used here is from http://www.quirksmode.org/js/detect.html

Examples (edit bottom of browserWar.js, or can be called within <script> tag in HTML files):
browserwar.klass('', 'browser_warning', true);
browserwar.message('<p>This site is optimized for the <a href="http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/"> Mozilla Firefox</a> browser.</p>' +
  "<p>It looks like you're using <b>" + browserwar.browser_display_name + " " + BrowserDetect.version + "</b> or older. To get the best experience from this site we suggest you upgrade your browser.</p>" +
  '<p>Click the image below to learn more about alternative browser options.</p>' +

browserwar.style('200px','20px','8px ridge #CE8DAD','#fff','#000');

        if true, then a close link is added to the "message" to the user, so they can clear it off their screen.
