With Internet Explorer 11 only a few weeks old, Google Apps will support only the current version and IE 10, Google announced on Tuesday.

The move -- which Google says follows its established practice of supporting only the current and prior major versions for competing browsers -- could help push Google Chrome's adoption rate. It's unlikely that Chrome, which automatically updates to its latest version, would ever not work with Google Apps.

However, with Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7 in the near future , companies that need IE support for other enterprise Web apps probably will hold on to IE as their default browser.
