Windows XP user? Oh, hello there. I have good news for you. Or rather, Google does. The Chrome team has announced that they will be extending support for Windows XP till the end of 2015.
Google says that they understand “not everyone can easily switch to a newer operating system”. From the blog:
…we know that not everyone can easily switch to a newer operating system. 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.
Thank you, Google. Now, do you guys think all those XP users will move to Windows 10 when hits the market this year?
