THIS COMPUTER WILL SOON STOP RECEIVING GOOGLE CHROME UPDATES BECAUSE WINDOWS XP AND WINDOWS VISTA WILL NO LONGER BE SUPPORTED.
Are you receiving this message? Don’t panic. Things change, and Google is simple letting you know that later on the Windows XP and VISTA Operating Systems will be phased out as viable foundations for any updates for the Google Chrome Browser.
What does this mean?
It means that the advances and changes in encryption technology, web page formatting, and several other features of your operating system will be too old to work well with more modern and secure websites.
Things change, and Google is letting you know they are changing.
You can likely keep using your XP or Vista system for a good while, but in a year or so, there will be web pages you cannot access, videos you cannot watch and a variety of other web based functions you will not have access to with an older browser.
Chrome updates itself regularly and does a good job of keeping up with things. If our cars did this, they would get new tires automatically, fill themselves with gas when they got low and wash themselves about once a month.
But they probably couldn’t replace the highway pavement if it got too old to work well on the Interstate, and this is what Google is telling us about XP and Vista. The foundation on which your software runs is becoming outdated and you will eventually need to upgrade to a new system.
If your computer can handle it, you can install Windows 7 or later and you can keep on trucking. If not, it may be time to start shopping for a new computer.
Things change.We need to change with them.
