Unsurprisingly, it appears that the Google company’s YouTube will be phasing out support for Microsoft’s infamous Internet Explorer 6 browser, news that arrived via multiple user encounters with a warning message stating that the site would be ‘phasing out support’ for a certain browser soon. A logical move for certain, there are many consumers glad to see IE6 pushed out. The online video favorite is complete with a helpful suggestion box, pointing to more up to date browsers like Google Chrome, Internet Explorer 8 and Firefox 3.5 to run with YouTube.
YouTube officials haven’t released a statement clarifying their plans, but as IE loses market share to Firefox and Safari at a more rapid pace, the consensus seems to be that Google would sooner assign developers to optimizing the service for newer, better browsers than have them continue trying to work with the bug ridden Microsoft browser.
