Chrome to end support for Windows XP, Vista, and OS X 10.8 on April 2016

If you use Chrome on an older operating system such as Windows XP (and yes we do still have clients that refuse to upgrade), your browser could stop getting updates in just a few weeks. For some of you Google Chrome is the only web browser that still allows your web based applications to function under Windows XP. Therefore, this could become a serious issue. Google’s official Chrome Blog announced back in November that it will be ending support for Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Mac OS X 10.6, 10.7, and 10.8 in April 2016. Chrome browsers on those operating systems will continue to work (in theory), but they will stop getting updates from Google.

As we have all come to understand updates are crucial and it’s just a matter of time before Chrome stops working on the older systems completely. We strongly recommend upgrading all remaining Windows XP and Vista workstations as soon as possible.
