Google phasing out support for IE6 081212_explorerGoogle has clearly had enough with Internet Explorer 6.

As of March 1, Google will no longer support IE6 on its Google Docs and Google Sites services, it announced Friday. IE users will have to upgrade to at least version 7 if they want to use those products, as "many other companies have already stopped supporting older browsers like Internet Explorer 6.0 as well as browsers that are not supported by their own manufacturers."

A flaw in IE6 was exploited in the recent cyberattacks against Google and other U.S. companies, and Microsoft scrambled to patch the flaw in a rare out-of-cycle patch release earlier this month. Use of the browser--considered much weaker than more recent versions of IE within the security community--has been dropping with the release of Internet Explorer 8 but it is still being used by 13.5 percent of Web surfers, according to statistics from StatCounter.

Google set the baseline for other browsers at Firefox 3.0 or higher, Chrome 4.0 or higher, and Safari 3.0 or higher. "...you may find that from March 1, key functionality within these products--as well as new Docs and Sites features--won't work properly in older browsers," Google said.

Yeah. It would be awesome if IE died all together.... Then we would see Firefox or Google Chrome in Windows. More likely Firefox then Google Chrome. Another possibility is that Microsoft would just change the name and logo of IE and say its a whole new browser...

just like with the MSN search ... that changed to bing and suddenly is the new hype search engine ... yeah right.

good news... IE 7 or 8 isn't the answer but its far better than 6.

Little changes like this will make IE go away and Microsoft like finally its gone. I don't understand why not disable IE 6 in the first place like send a message to all IE 6 browsers and say you can't do anything but go to are update page and download the new browser.
