Google Apps to stop support for older web browsers
In continuing Google’s support for HTML5, it has decided to stop support for older versions of Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer and Safari when using it’s web based suite of Google Apps. The older web browsers lack full support of HTML 5 to implement better user experience features like drag & drop, desktop notifications.
To be able to add features that enhance the user experience Google will drop support for the older browser versions (Firefox 3.5, Internet Explorer 7, Safari 3 and older) starting August 1.
Users should start updating to newer versions of their web browsers to use Google Apps like Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Talk, Google Docs and Google Sites. It’s actually a good idea to update your browser even if you don’t use Google Apps since updates usually provide fixes.
