Google Says No Support for Old Browsers
August 1 is the cut off - upgrade now
Google has posted an important announcement online today.
17% of users are still using IE7, Safari 3, Firefox 3.5 and earlier versions of these browsers. As of August 1 Google will no longer support them and many browser functions will no longer work. This means users will have to upgrade to what Google calls "modern browsers", meaning the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari.
As recently as two months ago, Mozilla, the developer of Firefox, still had 12 million Firefox 3.5 users and the company had been frustrated in its attempts to get people to upgrade. Finally, Mozilla mounted a major campaign to get it's users to upgrade in May. Now, as a result, Mozilla reports they are down to 1 million Firefox 3.5 users.
Microsoft has had a long campaign underway to get people to upgrade from IE6, it was been reported that 11% of all global users are still on IE6 and in China this number is 34%.
Safari has not had a significant problem with its users utilizing older versions of its browser.
