No Google Updates for Windows XP and vista OS users

Google today announced it is extending Chrome support for Windows XP until April 2016. The company will also end Chrome support for Windows Vista, OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, OS X 10.7 Lion, and OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion at the same time.

This means Google will provide regular Chrome updates and security patches for users on these operating systems for five more months. After that, the browser will still work, but it will be stuck on the last version released in April.

Google rightly explained that “such older platforms are missing critical security updates,” “have a greater potential to be infected by viruses and malware,” and “are no longer actively supported by Microsoft and Apple.” If you want to receive the latest Chrome versions and features, the company thus advises you to move to a newer operating system.

For users who continue to remain on Windows XP, supported major browser choices will be reduced to Mozilla Firefox and Opera.

For the folks who ever is still using windows XP and Vista its a clear message Get updated soon.
