IE6 Users To Lose Gmail And Google Calendar Support Too

It was previously mentioned that Google Docs and Google Sites would be ditching support for Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 6 (IE6).Considering the popularity of those services, it would probably be a good way to get users to upgrade/switch to a newer version or competing browser. Now it seems that Google is going to take it one step further, by dropping support for the rest of the Google Apps suite (including Gmail) late in 2010, though we’re obviously talking about IE6. This change will affect both enterprise and consumers, so whichever category you fall into, upgrading to a newer browser has just become more important. Will other popular services start to drop support for IE6? It’s certainly a good way to make the web move forward, though there is the risk of losing a part of your customer base.
