Google Ditching Support For Internet Explorer 6

A few years back, ditching support for Internet Explorer 6 (IE6) would probably have been deemed suicidal for any service, but with the popularity of Safari, Opera, Firefox, Chrome, and even IE7/IE8, life without IE6 won’t seem so bad to the majority out there anymore. It’s hard to be sure whether it’s related to the attacks that Google has recently come under, most likely via IE6, but as of March 1st, Google will no longer support IE6 on its Google Docs and Google Sites services. Considering that 13.5 percent of the web surfers are still using IE6, this move might be a good way to help bring awareness to the need to upgrade to a newer browser.
