Google finally pulling the plug on Chrome for Windows XP

3 years ago177 views

Google will finally stop supporting Chrome on older operating systems.

In a post on the official Chrome blog, Google announced the end of Chrome's support for Windows XP and Windows Vista, as well Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, 10.7 Lion and 10.8 Mountain Lion for Apple computers. If you're running any of those platforms, you've got until April 2016 to upgrade to a newer version of Windows or OS X if you want Chrome to remain secure from malware.

If you are stubbornly clinging to XP, Chrome will continue to work, but will no longer be updated with security patches. That means you will be at risk from viruses and malware as you miss out on important security updates. Microsoft stopped supporting XP in April 2014, and cut off Vista in 2012. But considering that XP launched in 2001, it's showing impressive longevity.
