Internet Explorer 8, which launched in 2009, isn’t exactly a modern browser by any standards and it’s slowly turning into the new Internet Explorer 6. Google stopped supporting Google Apps on IE8 last year, and today, the company announced that Google Analytics will also stop supporting it by the end of the year.

The Google Analytics team says it made the decision because it wants to be able to “accelerate the pace at which we can innovate new product features” and to “facilitate adoption of newer web technologies in the design of the Google Analytics product.” It’s worth noting that Analytics will continue to measure traffic from IE8.

Seems to be not only since today, as I cannot access my analytics account with IE8 since end of June. Always got the message to choose a differnt, more modern browser.
