Google Kills IE8, Forcing Windows XP Users To Use Other Browsers
Google has officially decided to end support for the Microsoft’s old web browser, Internet Explorer 8 in Google Apps. According to Google’s policy, then will only support the current version of a browser and the one before that. Which, puts all the Windows XP users in an awkward position as they can’t run both the IE 9 and IE10.
All the Windows XP users who depends on Internet Explorer may already know that any of the Google’s services wont work on older versions of Internet Explorer. Every time you try to use a Google App like Gmail, Google Docs, Google Drive or Calendar, you will get an error message prompting to download Google Chrome. Same thing will happen to Internet Explorer 8 users starting this November 8th.
According to Nick Farrel from FudZilla, this could actually be more profitable for Microsoft more than Google because they have been “trying to get people to upgrade from XP for the last five years.” I certainly agree with that statement. It’s time for everyone to learn from out ancient history and move to better and bigger things.
