Google to stop supporting IE7, Safari 3, Firefox 3.5

I am pleased to report that from August 1st 2011 Google will no longer support IE7, Safari 3, Firefox 3.5 on their platform. These moves are significant because it puts further pressure on organisations stuck on older browsers to upgrade.

One of the main reasons why the public sector and some businesses persist with older browsers is their proprietary software does not work on newer browsers. They are often tied in by vendor licensing or the costs of migrating code prevents innovation. At some stage this has to change, the announcement by Google adds welcome weight to the debate.
