Gmail notice touts Chrome and Firefox, dismisses IE as too slow

It’s interesting to imagine the outrage that would ensue, if Microsoft did something similar

Google Inc. is pushing users of its Gmail e-mail service to dump Microsoft Corp.'s Internet Explorer for its own Chrome browser or Mozilla Corp.'s Firefox.

When users of IE6 reach Gmail.com, a "Get faster Gmail" message appears in the Web-based service's menu bar. The message, in turn, links to a page on Google's Web site that touts Chrome and Firefox 3 as being "twice as fast" at running Gmail.
