Three months down the line google analytics will drop out support for internet explorer 8 from its browsers compatible lists. Internet explorer 8 will no longer officially compatible with google analytics says later in an announcement made in their official blog post on Monday.
The initiative will not only shift google analytics team focus on accelerating pace for the development of more innovative products for GA users but also provide an opportunity to adopt new web technologies in the design of analytics products.
Google analytics is giving three months time frame to prepare analytics users for this change and minimize the disruption and eliminate any impact on their businesses.
Google analytics will continue to support internet explorer 9 or higher and other latest version of chrome, firefox, safari and other modern browsers. However, GA users will continue to see the traffic from Internet explorer 8 browser.
