Google Maps JavaScript API v3 was launched to “develop a framework in which we could deliver compelling and innovative features to developers that cater to new breed of location-aware mobile internet devices. As we look ahead it’s clear that HTML 5 offers us platform we need to deliver on this vision. However as we develop features to exploit HTML5’s potential it willn’t be possible to maintain our current level of support for older web browsers. For this reason, we’ll be updating ‘list of supported browsers’ for Maps API v3 on a regular basis. First update removes ‘Firefox 2, IE6, and Safari 3,’ while adding support for Android browser and for Chrome on Mac and Linux[...]Browsers that we no longer support for Maps API v3 will continue to be supported for Maps JavaScript API v2,” notes Google.
