Google says Goodbye to Internet Explorer 6.0…Finally

February 16th, 2010

In one of our past articles we shared web statistics on how a large percentage of the tire and automotive service industry are using outdated web browsers.  In some cases this is caused by web sites dealers are using because these sites may only support old web browsers like Explorer 6.0.

We know the internet has changed our lives and will continue to change the way we live and do business.  The browser wars are not the issue here, the issue is we cannot move forward and continue to support outdated standards and software.  Google understands this and knows to make better software, they have to draw a line for supporting old technology in order to move into the future and create new standards.  This week Google Apps Admins received the following exert via email:

“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.”

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.

You may ask, why do we care?  We want our users to truly enjoy their experiences with any technology, and browsing the web is by far the most commonly used technology.  Our offices are filled with all kinds of geeks using different tools and are constantly sharing great web browser add-ons and features.  The web browser is where most of us at TCS Tire live our day to day lives, and when we see our customers struggling to enjoy their web browsing experience…we want to help!
