FF 3.5, IE 7, and Safari 3 get off of our cloud
Google has decided that it will not support older browsers on its cloud. In a statement the outfit said that in order for web applications to spring even farther ahead of traditional software, its teams need to make use of new capabilities available in modern browsers.

Google wants to bring in desktop notifications for Gmail and drag-and-drop file upload in Google Docs require advanced browsers that support HTML5. Google said that the older browsers just don’t have the chops to do that.

Beginning August it will only support the current and prior major release of Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari on a rolling basis. Each time a new version is released, the company will begin supporting the update and stop supporting the third-oldest version.

However it is killing off support for the following browsers and their predecessors: Firefox 3.5, Internet Explorer 7, and Safari 3. If users try these browsers on the cloud they will have trouble using certain features in Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Talk, Google Docs and Google Sites.
