Important notice: Google Apps browser support

Dear Google Apps admin,​

In order to continue to improve our products and deliver more
sophisticated features and performance, we are harnessing some of the
latest improvements in web browser technology. This includes faster
JavaScript processing and new standards like HTML5. As a result, over
the course of 2010, we will be phasing out support for Microsoft
Internet Explorer 6.0 ​as well as other older browsers that are not
supported by their own manufacturers.

We plan to begin phasing out support of these older browsers on the
Google Docs suite and the Google Sites editor on March 1, 2010. After
that point, certain functionality within these applications may have
higher latency and may not work correctly in these older browsers. Later
in 2010, we will start to phase out support for these browsers for
Google Mail and Google Calendar.

Google Apps will continue to support Internet Explorer 7.0 and above,
Firefox 3.0 and above, Google Chrome 4.0 and above, and Safari 3.0 and

Starting this week, users on these older browsers will see a message in
Google Docs and the Google Sites editor explaining this change and
asking them to upgrade their browser. We will also alert you again
closer to March 1 to remind you of this change.

In 2009, the Google Apps team delivered more than 100 improvements to
enhance your product experience. We are aiming to beat that in 2010 and
continue to deliver the best and most innovative collaboration products
for businesses.

Thank you for your continued support!
