View Full Version : JavaScript Redirect Test: Mac Users

Feb 3, 2004, 11:44 AM
I'm working on a redirect script that redirects based on web users with Mac computers. Unfortunately I don't have a Mac computer to test it. Could you click the link and confirm that it works for me?


If all goes well you will be redirected to a page with with the words "MAC USERS" centered inside it.

If you click the link and you see nothing or some script error occurs well.... its back to the drawing board.

As far as I can see the JavaScript is ok but I'm not 100% sure.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Thanks Mr. Anderson

Using Opera on Win XP, I get a bright red screen with
=4) window.location.replace("OTHERS.html") //if IE 4+ else if (browser_type=="Microsoft Internet Explorer"&&browser_version>=4) window.location.replace("IE.html") //Default goto page (NOT NS 4+ and NOT IE 4+) else window.location="IE.html" REDIRECT

at the top.

With safari 1.2 and Mac OS 10.3.2 I get a green box that says all others. With IE 5.2.3 I get a blank screen.

Blank, OS 9/IE 5.1. That's what I get for using Classic...
