Google Chrome Drops Support For Older Versions Of Windows And OS X

Google has announced that it is dropping support for older versions of Windows and Operating System (OS) X on the desktop version of Chrome.

Starting April 2016, Chrome will no longer be updated on Windows XP, and Windows Vista, as well as Operating System (OS) X 10.6, 10.7, and 10.8. Google says these platforms are no longer being officially supported by Microsoft and Apple, and it makes sense for users to update to newer versions of these operating systems to receive the latest security updates.

To be clear, Chrome will still work on all of these platform, but won't be getting any further updates. If it's not poor enough to have an out of date operating system, it's worse to have an outdated browser that does not have the latest security patches.
