Google announced that it would no longer maintain the Chrome browser on older, unsupported platforms. The change is effective from April 2016. Then the Chrome browser will stop receiving updates and security fixes for Windows XP and Vista, as well as OS X 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8 devices from Apple.

Google explained its decision by the fact that these operating systems are no longer supported actively by Microsoft and Apple. Interestingly, however, is that Microsoft has committed to support Vista to April 2017. Google says that “these old platforms missing critical updates and security are likely to be infected by viruses and malware.”

Chrome will continue to work on the affected operating systems, after Google stop supporting them, but they will not be updated to the latest version. With this steps, of course, Google is trying to encourage users to upgrade their machines for security reasons.
