Browser Support for Google Apps - June 7, 2011
Google has announced important changes to Google Apps browser support and recommended steps to take. Beginning on August 1, 2011, Google Apps support for the following browsers versions will be DISCONTINUED:
- Microsoft Internet Explorer 7
- Mozilla Firefox 3.5
- Apple Safari 3
After August 1, you and your users may have trouble using certain features in Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Talk, Google Docs and Google Sites with these older browsers, and eventually these apps may stop working entirely. We are making this change to give users the best experience with Google Apps, so we can offer the capabilities of modern browsers to deliver features such as desktop notifications for Gmail and drag-and-drop file upload in Google Docs.
For this reason, beginning August 1, 2011, Google Apps will support the current and previous major releases of Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari on a rolling basis. Each time a new version is released, we’ll begin supporting that version and stop supporting the third-oldest version.

E-Business Suite and Banner users please note--
before updating any browsers, review the browser certification matrix for use
with Oracle E-Business Suite 11i found at (http://pegasus.binghamton.edu:6128/certifications.htm). This matrix should apply to Banner as
well. For the Windows platform, Internet
Explorer v8 is certified for Oracle E-Business Suite, Banner and Google Apps.
