Please note that Google will be dropping support for Windows XP and Vista in April 2016. This is due to the fact that Chrome is based on the Chromium project, and Chromium will no longer be "supported" on XP or Vista. Whether or not it will continut to run is another matter.
If you download Chrome for XP today, you will receive a warning about the end of support every time you launch the browser.
To get rid of this warning, please follow my instructions in this how-to: http://www.computing.net/howtos/sho...
You can also find these instructions on Google Groups, or my page here: http://sdfox7.com/chromexp2.htm
I would still highly recommend switching to Mozilla Firefox, Opera, or any of the many other supported browsers.
While my fix turns off the message, you will NOT receive further Google Chrome updates.
