Google Stops Supporting Chrome for Older Operating Systems
Posted on 06/06/2016 by Erik Wind
As of April 2016, Google has ended its support for any computer running the following operating systems: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Mac OS 10.6, 10.7, and 10.8. Computers that are running any of these operating systems will no longer receive updates for its Internet browser, Google Chrome.
If your computer is currently running any of the operating systems mentioned above, and you are experiencing issues with Google Chrome, we recommend that you switch to Mozilla Firefox. At this time, Firefox is still supported on computers running these operating systems. See below for help with determining what operating system is installed on your computer.
