Google to offer 18 more months of Chrome support for Windows 7

Posted on Monday, January 13 2020 @ 11:20:09 CET by

Microsoft will cease supporting Windows 7 on January 14, 2020 and most companies will do the same thing in the near future (or some have already thrown Windows 7 out of the window). TechSpot writes Google plans to support Windows 7 for at least 18 more months with its Chrome browser.
“We will continue to fully support Chrome on Windows 7 for a minimum of 18 months from Microsoft’s End of Life date, until at least July 15, 2021,” writes Chrome's engineering director, Max Christoff.

The main reason for Chrome extending its support is so enterprise users can keep benefiting from the browser while they migrate from Windows 7 to Windows 10. It can be a lengthy process, especially in large organizations that have thousands of PCs.
About 26 percent of web users are still running Windows 7, making this somewhat of a repeat of the Windows XP upgrade fiasco. If you want to stay safe online, your best bet is to upgrade to Windows 10 asap.
