Google has announced to stop Google Apps support for Internet Explorer 8. That means, people using IE 8 or older version of IE, will need to update their browsers to use all features of Google Apps without any compatibility issue.
Google clearly declared that the company will end all support for IE 8 from November 15, 2012. Because, Internet Explorer 10 will be released on October 26. Google said that “Each time a new version of one of these browsers is released, we begin supporting the update and stop supporting the third-oldest version.”
Windows XP users can not install upgraded version of IE, because Microsoft has blocked this process, according to a source. Though there is Chrome browser available as an alternative, many users especially IT managers in government and education institutes are in dilemma. Either they have to leave their long used browser interface to adopt another one or they have to upgrade to a higher version of Windows OS.
