Last year in April, Microsoft discontinued support for Windows XP. There are no security updates or patches released over the course of the last one year for the decade old operating system. If you’re using Google Chrome on the good-old Windows XP — upgrade it to a new operating system please — there’s a piece of good news for you. Google announced the company will continue to push updates for Google Chrome on Windows XP until the end of 2015.
Google said in a blog post,
Millions of people are still working on XP computers every day. We want those people to have the option to use a browser that’s up-to-date and as safe as possible on an unsupported operating system. We previously announced that we’d keep supporting Chrome on Windows XP through ‘at least’ April 2015. It’s April 2015 now, and we’re extending that commitment. We will continue to provide regular updates and security patches to Chrome on XP through the end of 2015.
This means the users will continue to get all the new features and security patches for the browser by the end of 2015. Despite of being so old, there are millions of users still relying on Windows XP as their operating system — it seems it just won’t go away.Further reading: Chrome, Google, Microsoft, Windows XP
