Google phases out support for IE6


Google has begun to phase out support for Internet Explorer 6, the browser identified as the weak link in a "sophisticated and targeted" cyber attack on the search engine.


The firm said from March 1st 2010 some of its services, such as Google Docs, would not work "properly" with the browser.


Microsoft reacted by quickly updating the browser, nearly three weeks ahead of its regular security update.


However, Google has now said it is going to phase out support for the browser "starting with Google Docs and Google Sites".


It said that as a result, some "key functionality" of the applications would not work when used with IE6.


Microsoft has said that it will support the browser until 2014.


Microsoft has released a fix for Internet Explorer and recommended that customers install the update as soon as possible or update to the latest version of the web browser for "improved security".


Microsoft normally issues patches monthly but the high-profile nature of the attacks led it to act more quickly.
