Google Apps will no longer support older browsers
Google has just announced that Google Apps, a cloud based suite of applications, which happens to be an extremely popular service amongst many users will no longer be supporting older browsers.
From the 1st of August this year, browsers including Firefox 3.5, Internet Explorer 7 and also Safari 3 will now not be fully compatible with certain features contained within Google Apps, which includes Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Talk, Google Docs and also Google Sites. Eventually, none of these products will work with older browsers. Oddly though, there was no mention of older versions of Opera.
Google explains in their blog post that “As the world moves more to the web, these new browsers are more than just a modern convenience, they are a necessity for what the future holds.”
So if you happen to use Google Apps, as well as being a fan of anything pre IE7, Google is encouraging you to update to the latest version of your favourite browser to ensure you have the best possible experience using Google Apps.
