Google to End Support for Internet Explorer 6

Google announced last week that the company will begin phasing out support of Microsoft's Internet Explorer version 6 beginning in March.

The announcement is directly related to attacks that Google had to fend off. The cyber attacks, which originated in China exploited a vulnerability found in IE6. Shortly after the attacks, Microsoft issued a patch that eliminated the problem.

Google cited that many other companies have stopped supporting other older versions of popular browsers.

Google Docs and Google Sites will be the first areas to drop IE6. The company suggest upgrading to the latest version of Internet Explorer or using Firefox, Google Chrome, or Safari.
