Google Apps To End Internet Explorer 8 Support

Google Apps won’t work on Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) web browser after November 15th, Google said in a blog post last week.

Here is more from the Google blog: “Internet Explorer 10 launches on 10/26/2012, and as a result, we will discontinue 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.”

Engadget has more: “While the cutoff doesn’t amount to a full-fledged block, Google Apps users still stuck in 2009 will be reminded that they’re on their own until they upgrade. Is it the end of the world for web apps on older PCs? No, but it’s clear that their days are numbered.”
