Google will not support anymore Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 6 Web browser. Support for Internet Explorer 6 in Google Docs and Google Sites will end March 1, 2010. That means IE6 users who try to use Google Docs or Google Sites may find that “key functionality” don’t work correctly. To ensure the best experience and highest security, be sure to keep your browser updated. Use those or more recent versions of browsers: Internet Explorer 7, Mozilla Firefox 3.0, Google Chrome 4.0 or Safari 3.0.
An announcement from a blog of Rajen Sheth, Google Apps senior product manager: “Many other companies have already stopped supporting older browsers like Internet Explorer 6.0 as well as browsers that are not supported by their own manufacturers. We’re also going to begin phasing out our support, starting with Google Docs and Google Sites.”
According to StatCounter, Internet Explorer has 18 percent market share among browsers.
