You know a browser is still alive when Google releases a special code base patch for one of it’s web-apps to allow support. Of course, you also know that there isn’t any thing worse than using Internet Explorer.
Today, Google announced that they will be pushing a code base patch that will allow Internet Explorer 6 to use Gmail. While that sounds great, I think, if anything, a little pop-up should still appear in the corner: upgrade to Internet Explorer 7 Today!
Google worked with Microsoft on this, so much in fact, an Internet Explorer patch has been released to address memory management issues in IE6 that were keeping Gmail off of the browser.
