Bringing Google tools to Windows 8

Anyone accustomed to using Google’s Chrome browser, seeing Google search in their browser and having other Google tools handy in previous versions of Windows will notice their absence in Windows 8. Google noticed as well, and has instructions for bringing Chrome and Google search tools to the new O/S.

Google’s aptly-titled Get Your Google Back page provides users with a simple wizard-based process for returning the missing features.

Google Apps dropping support for Internet Explorer 8

Google recently announced that it will be dropping support for version 8 and earlier of Internet Explorer in Google Apps.

The change will occur shortly after the release of Internet Explorer 10, on November 15, 2012.

Internet Explorer 8 is the most recent version of the web browser that runs on Windows XP, so anyone who uses Internet Explorer on Windows XP to access Google Apps will need to switch to a different web browser, or upgrade to Windows 7 or 8 after November 15.
