Tutorial :Prevent javascript execution in IE6


I want to prevent some parts of my javascript, written with jQuery if that matters, from executing in IE6. What are the prefered methods to accomplish this?



You could use conditional comments to define a variable, and check if it's set on execution.

The syntax is <!--[if IE 6> <script ... /><![endif]-->. The content of the comment is invisible to all other browsers, so it's really foolproof.


Since you have mentioned JQuery, why don't you use " if ($.browser.msie)" construction. I think this resource will be useful for you


You should just use a browser detection script and put a condition on IE6 that your scripts should not be executed. here is a link for browser detection javascript.


For your stated purpose, you should definitely use Progressive Enhancement instead of browser detection.
