Google Using Gmail to Convert IE Users to Firefox, Chrome

By | December 30, 2008 | 7 Comments

Beyond pushing Chrome on google.com and planning to roll it out with OEMs, Google has found a new way to tell users about its browser. This time, the search giant is targeting IE users who use Gmail. With a simple “Get faster Gmail” message (which only appears in IE), Google is luring users of its e-mail service to a support page which explains that IE is slow at running Gmail.

The solution, according to Google, is to switch browsers. After offering download links to both Firefox and Chrome, Google notes that IE8 (which is faster at Javascript than previous IE versions) is now in development.
