Dear Google Apps admin,

In order to continue to improve our products and deliver more sophisticated features and performance, we are harnessing some of the latest improvements in web browser technology. This includes faster JavaScript processing and new standards like HTML5. As a result, over the course of 2010, we will be phasing out support for Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 as well as other older browsers that are not supported by their own manufacturers.

We plan to begin phasing out support of these older browsers on the Google Docs suite and the Google Sites editor on March 1, 2010. After that point, certain functionality within these applications may have higher latency and may not work correctly in these older browsers. Later in 2010, we will start to phase out support for these browsers for Google Mail and Google Calendar.

Google Apps will continue to support Internet Explorer 7.0 and above, Firefox 3.0 and above, Google Chrome 4.0 and above, and Safari 3.0 and above.

Starting this week, users on these older browsers will see a message in Google Docs and the Google Sites editor explaining this change and asking them to upgrade their browser. We will also alert you again closer to March 1 to remind you of this change.

In 2009, the Google Apps team delivered more than 100 improvements to enhance your product experience. We are aiming to beat that in 2010 and continue to deliver the best and most innovative collaboration products for businesses.

Thank you for your continued support!

Sincerely,

The Google Apps team

Anyone get the feeling they are pushing towards only supporting Chrome in the future ?

They are pushing Chrome, but then why resist? IE6 is all but dead these days and being the most targeted browser for exploits I'd be getting rid (not a fan of IE 8 yet).

Chrome is my everyday browser, I have firefox for the extensions, and IE for a couple of sites that don't like the others.

Got this too today.

I use a mix of IE7 & 8 (depending upon which computer I'm using). Have tried Firefox & Safari etc but keep coming back to IE.

On the IE6 front we're only just upgrading from IE6 to 7 (with the latest patches) across our corporate environment.

I think that Google have said they will no longer suppoty IE6 as that allowed the open spot that made the chinese hacking possible.
