Google gives IE6 the boot

Darren Allan

From next month, Google will cease to support the aged version of Microsoft’s browser, Internet Explorer 6.

Google applications such as Google Docs and Sites will no longer support IE6 come March.

IE6 users will still be able to access these sites, but newer features won’t be available, and indeed existing features might fail to work properly.

Google recommends users upgrade to a newer version of Internet Explorer, or switch to an alternative such as Firefox or indeed its own Chrome browser.

While most people have long since moved on from version 6 of Internet Explorer, some businesses continue to use it, so will have to start seriously thinking about their upgrade policy.

In other bad news for IE6, the NHS is set to drop the browser too, and move up to version 7.
