For reminder, the last version of Google Chrome ends support for a range of operating systems: Windows XP, Windows Vista, OS X 10.6, OS X 10.7 et OS X 10.8.

Google Chrome version 50 was released to the browser’s stable channel on April 14th, and in addition to a handful of new features and security fixes, the update also ends support for a wide range of operating systems that have been supported since Chrome launched on those platforms. Windows XP, Windows Vista, OS X 10.6, OS X 10.7, and OS X 10.8 are no longer supported.


It is important to note that those OS are no longer safe to use. Security patches for Windows XP stopped in April of 2014, and patches for OS X 10.6 stopped a few months before that.


We strongly suggest you take that opportunity to upgrade your OS to a fully supported one. In case you just can’t, Firefox 45 or the latest version of Opera can do the trick but remember that a modern browser won’t protect you from the vulnerabilities of the underlying OS.
