SHA-2 What is the real date & impact google stops supporting SHA-1?

Microsoft -- January 1st 2017 until they will stop accepting SHA-1 certs. I am being told that I am being told that Google announced their date as Jan 1, 2014 but I can't find anything that specifies this date for Google.  Also does this mean that the only browser that won't work with my site will be Google chrome?  It would buy me some more time since I.E. is our standard?

I'm assuming your concern is that your site / server does not yet support SHA-2.  All current browsers already support SHA-2 (256) so if Chrome or other websites / web servers switch to SHA-2 you should not be affected (unless I'm misunderstanding your concern).

Above is your answer for Chrome's support of SHA-1.  You would have to look up what other browsers are targeting for sun setting SHA-1.
