Google Wants To Kill IE : Stops Support For Internet Explorer 8

Google is surely taking some bold steps to make the web a more safer and compatible place, as they had announced last year, that they will support the latest version of Google Chrome (which automatically updates whenever it detects that a new version of the browser is available) as well as the current and prior major release of Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari on a rolling basis.

Each time a new version of one of these browsers is released, Google begins supporting the update and stops supporting the third-oldest version. Internet Explorer 10 launches on 10/26/2012, and as a result, Google will be discontinuing support for Internet Explorer 8 shortly afterwards, on 11/15/2012. After this date users accessing Google Apps services using Internet Explorer 8 will see a message recommending that they upgrade their browser.
