Good bye, IE8, Google Apps leaves you
Google Apps team annouced not supporting IE 8 and lower version of IE, this will affect every Google App user including commercial, education and government. The time for leaving IE 8 is 15 November, at that time, IE 10 will be released for a few weeks.
Google Apps team explained here:
As we announced last year, we support the latest version of Google Chrome (which automatically updates whenever it detects that a new version of the browser is available) as well as the current and prior major release of Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari on a rolling basis. Each time a new version of one of these browsers is released, we begin supporting the update and stop supporting the third-oldest version.
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.
For those who are still using IE 8 or lower version of IE, please upgrade your IE to latest version as soon as possible to avoid any issues caused.
