Doomed to get the older version of Google

“Get the latest version of browser to improve your security and get a better experience of the web”

You might have noticed some of you getting the older version of the Google tools and homepage, that’s true. That is because you are using on of the outdated version of internet browser. Google has started encouraging users to update their internet browsers on of the newer browsers. We also encourage everyone to make the free upgrade to modern browsers — they’re more secure and provide a better web experience overall.

At the weekend, many people reported in a Google forum they were seeing 2013 versions of the Google and image search homepages when using older browsers.The problem was most pronounced among those using variants of Safari 5.1 and Opera 12.

A Google engineer joined the discussion and explained that the change was not the result of a bug. “It’s working as intended,” said a Google staffer called “nealem”. She added: “We’re continually making improvements to Search, so we can only provide limited support for some outdated browsers.”
