Shock Horror! Gmail not supported by Google Browser!

Okay. Stop panicking. It is really.
But my gmail just stubbed its toe on some lump in the internet and crashed. This is what it said:

"We have detected a problem,
We're sorry. It seems there is a problem. Please try using Google Mail with a supported browser. If you are encountering this error while using a supported browser, we suggest alerting your Internet Service Provider (ISP) that a proxy is failing to accept cookies on HTTP redirects."

So I click on Google's link..

"Does Google Mail support my browser?
Google Mail is accessible at wherever you have access to the Internet via a PC, Linux, or Macintosh (Mac) computer with one of the following fully supported browsers:

* IE 5.5+ (download: Windows)
* Netscape 7.1+ (download: Windows Mac Linux)
* Mozilla 1.4+ (download: Windows Mac Linux)
* Firefox 0.8+ (download: Windows Mac Linux)
* Safari 1.3+ (download: Mac)

If you access Google Mail with a browser different from those listed above, you will be automatically directed to the basic HTML view of Google Mail. Basic HTML view works with the following browsers, as well as many others:

* IE 4.0+
* Netscape 4.07+
* Opera 6.03+

Regardless of your browser type, you must have cookies enabled to use Google Mail. If your browser supports it, please also enable JavaScript. "

So no Google Chrome Browser then?

Time to update the page, guys.
By the way... Have you noticed it's not possible to send an email to google to tell them if any of their system is misbehaving? That's because google already knows what you are thinking.

  1. LOL.. So that must be one of the surprising new features I will find when using Gmail with the new Chrome browser. I have the "Gmail notifier" on my desktop and it still uses IE7 even when I am running Chrome. I joined the Chrome group as the 208th member. Am sure there is an easy fix... Just Gooogle it to find the answer like everyone else on the planet.

  2. Thanks for the comment... I can't get the streaming music to play.... will fiddle with it.

    As for Chrome, if you go into the wrench icon, customise and control, click Options, Basics, Default Browser, Make GoogleChrome my Default Browser, Close.
    You should then find Gmail notifier opening in Chrome.

    Watching all those Little Richard videos now, Great!!!!!

  3. Delta: Streaming music..... Couldn't get it to work until I exited firefox 3 and tried it in google chrome.... lo and behold, in google chrome, there's a player widget! But not in Firefox..... Weird.
