Google to support XP long after Microsoft

Written by Nick Farrell



Will keep it until 2015

While Microsoft will officially retire its Windows XP operating system early next year, Google will continue to support its Chrome browser for the platform through at least early 2015.

Google said that it will keep sending out updates and security patches to the Windows XP version of Google Chrome "until at least April 2015." This might keep many XP users still in business as many of the faults within XP are delivered through the browser. Microsoft will not be doing anything to XP after April 8 2014.

"Many organizations still run dozens or even hundreds of applications on XP and may have trouble migrating. Our goal is to support Chrome for XP users during this transition process," Google said in a blog.
