Yahoo Mail Forces Users to Upgrade Browsers

Yahoo Mail users who are not using the latest versions of their browsers will start to see a notification message upon login asking you to update your browser to experience the full new Yahoo Mail interface. Those who choose to not upgrade by June 5th will be forced to utilize the classic Yahoo Mail interface. Interestingly enough considering the sheer amount of people who absolutely hate the new Yahoo Mail interface – this doesn’t actually sound too threatening.


However if do happen to like the new Yahoo Mail interface make sure that by June 5th you’re utilizing an up-to-date version of your browser. Yahoo Mail will be updating its supported web browser policy to cover only the two most recent versions of Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome and Safari.

“We understand that this policy update may be frustrating for some affected users. We appreciate their help in upgrading their browser and hope that the subsequent improvements in security, speed and functionality not just in Yahoo Mail but across their entire web experience will be welcomed. And we are happy that going forward these current version browsers include ‘auto-updating,’ so users get the safest and most current browser without the hassle of manually upgrading,” Yahoo’s Senior Vice President for Communication Products, Jeff Bonforte explained.
