“As the world moves more to the web, these new
browsers are more than just a modern convenience, they are a necessity for what
the future holds. For web applications to spring even farther ahead of
traditional software, our teams need to make use of new capabilities available
in modern browsers. For example, desktop notifications for Gmail and
drag-and-drop file upload in Google Docs require advanced browsers that support
HTML5. Older browsers just don’t have the chops to provide you with the same
high-quality experience,” the company has said in a blog post.
