    Google Chrome no longer support for windows xp and vista

    "Earlier this year, Google announced that it would still support Chrome on Windows XP through the end of 2015. The end of 2015 is getting closer and as Google announced today, so is the end of Chrome support for Windows XP. Starting April 2016, users who still use Chrome on XP the browser will no longer roll out updates and security fixes for Chrome running on Windows XP.

    The end of support for XP did not come as a surprise to the tech community as Google gave users ample time to make the transition to newer operating systems
    Aside from Windows XP, Google will also stop releasing Chrome updates to Windows Vista, Mac OS X 10.6, Mac OS X 10.7 and Mac OS X 10.8.

    Google said that the decision to cease releasing updates to the mentioned operating systems is because “these platforms are no longer actively supported by Microsoft and Apple.”

    Chrome director of Engineering Mark Pawliger posted on Chrome’s official blog, “Such older platforms are missing critical security updates and have a greater potential to be infected by viruses and malware.”

    Latest statistics reveal that Windows XP only holds less than 10 percent of global market share while Windows Vista is under two percent.

    In the case of Mac, OS X users are known to update their machines very quickly which means that the latest move from Google will not affect a lot of users on the Mac platform. Most computers still running on the OS X 10.6.8 platform are the old Mac that has PowerPC processors, according to PC World. Users of these machines are stuck with the OS X 10.6.8 since that is the last version of the operating system to support PowerPC processors, which majority are Power Macs and Power Books.

    Google Chrome is saying its goodbyes to Windows XP and Windows Vista. The company from Mountain View, Calif., will stop sending security patches to the Internet browser installed on the older operating systems starting April 2016.

    Mac OS X versions 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8 will also stop getting software updates after the aforementioned date
    According to a press release, the reason that the internet company will stop rolling out updates is because the software developers from Microsoft and Apple have ceased active support for the operating systems. You will still be able to access the Internet via Google Chrome on outdated platforms, but the North American company suggests that users upgrade their computer’s OS into the newer versions.

    Microsoft, in particular, cut off the support of Windows XP last year
    Software updates bring bug fixes and security patches for an app that protects it (and the user) from malware and cyber intrusions. Developers regularly roll out updates to ensure that the app is protected from new strains of hacking schemes and to fix existing vulnerabilities.

    “[W]e strongly encouraged users on older, unsupported platforms such as Windows XP to update to a supported, secure operating system,” the company advised. “Such older platforms are missing critical security updates and have a greater potential to be infected by viruses and malware.”

    If ursers continue to use the app after April 2016, they will be exposed to malware (that are rampant on the internet these days) and hacking attacks.

    Surprisingly a significant number of people are still using outdated operating systems on their devices. Computer World noted that some important organizations like the United States Navy are stuck with the two-decade-old Windows XP. The data by Net Market Share, meanwhile, revealed that Windows XP still has 11.68 percent share in the global desktop OS market, while Windows Vista, which never really caught on, only has 1.7 percent overall users.

    he time has come, however, for Google Chrome too, so starting April 2016, the browser will no longer be updated on older platforms, including here not only Windows XP, but also Windows Vista, which is somewhat surprising given the fact that this OS is still supported by Microsoft. Google initially promised to continue patching Chrome on XP until at least April 2015 but later extended support to the end of 2015 because, it said, millions of people still used XP to work. Really – there’s no excuse. While Google would probably prefer users to move on to Chromebooks for their Chrome needs, it might be safe to say, the company would prefer users to upgrade to Windows 7, 8, or 10 soon.

    Anyone still desperately clinging to Windows XP only has another six months of update for Chrome
    As Microsoft appears to be in the midst of app update storm today, another company is delivering a few bad news for users on older operating systems.

    Additionally, Windows Vista will stop getting support as well.

    Why such a long extension to the lifecycle of the out-dated operating system?

    If you have the latest version of Chrome installed on a computer running one of those operating systems, it’ll continue to run indefinitely
    Software Engineer Jackson Newhouse, of Quantcast said: “The wide release of Windows 10 did initially bump Edge’s market share from 12 per cent to 16 per cent”.

    “More and more users are using Windows 10 every day, and most have shifted off of the old Internet Explorer”.

    “However, that movement hasn’t entirely been towards Edge, with a number of users choosing Chrome instead”. At the same time, Chrome will be also cease to be supported on OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, 10.7 Lion, and 10.8 Mountain Lion.

    Ending XP support is not a massive surprise, but as Google also announced today, Windows Vista and Mac OS X 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8. will also no longer be supported “since these platforms are no longer actively supported by Microsoft and Apple.”

    As Google director of engineering Marc Pawliger points out in today’s announcement, “such older platforms are missing critical security updates and have a greater potential to be infected by viruses and malware.”

    Google, Microsoft and others have long continued to support their software on some of these old platforms long beyond their useful life because they often became vectors for viruses and malware — and with unpatched versions of Chrome or Internet Explorer running on them, they would have become even more dangerous.

    The good news is that Windows XP is now getting close to under 10 percent of global market share according to Net Market Share. Vista, which never quite caught on, is down to under 2 percent. OS X users tend to update their machines relatively quickly, so dropping support for older versions of Apple’s desktop operating system probably won’t affect all that many users.

    It’s worth noting that back in 2013, Google already announced the end of Chrome’s support for Windows XP for April 2015. That deadline came and went, but this time around, it seems the company is quite serious about cutting off those pesky XP users from Chrome updates once and for all.
