Bad news for those who are still hanging to Microsoft age old operating system Windows XP. Google stopped support for Windows XP with the latest release of Chrome version 50. Not only Windows XP it stopped support Windows Vista, OS X 10.6, OS X 10.7, OS X 10.8 also.
This is not a big surprise, because Google already announced in last November (2015) about this support withdrawal. It specified that it is going to stop support in April 2016 and implemented that decision with this Chrome 50 release.
If you are still using Windows XP this the the time to move to new versions of Windows at least Windows 7, or if you comfortable it’s better to adopt most recent Windows 10. Otherwise you may fail to get support for more popular softwares in near future.
People may think stopping support doesn’t affect them. They may use older versions of Setup files to execute Google Chrome. But in practical it can’t possible. Google releases security certificates periodically to ensure proper security while browsing various sites.
Without these updated security certificates browser doesn’t allow to load web pages. So you must use latest version of Chrome in order to browser internet. This is the reason for “The site’s security certificate has expired” warning while accessing with improper date/time settings.
Even you have latest version of Chrome you need to adjust Date/Time settings to reflect real time ones. Otherwise Google doesn’t load websites.
Now it’s your choice to stop using more than decade old Windows XP or stick on to that ignoring latest developments. If you continue neglecting latest Chrome support withdrawal you may be loose plenty of new features in Google Chrome.
