Chrome, the web browser that Google rolled out to the public way back in 2008, has reached version 50. Or to put it in other words, the latest Chrome version to be released to the stable channel is Chrome 50 for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Chrome reaching version 50 is a pretty big milestone for the browser, one that that should be celebrated. Google’s Chrome team, who says that it is "obsessed with stats," decided to do mark this milestone by presenting "a whirlwind tour of Chrome, by the numbers."

I have to remind you that with the release of Chrome 50, Google dropped support for Windows XP, the once-popular operating system that reached end of life a long time ago. Microsoft ended mainstream support for Windows XP in April 2009 and extended supported in April 2014.

As I was saying, Google dropped support for Windows XP, meaning the Chrome web browser will not get any more updates. No more bug fixes and no more security updates for Chrome on Windows XP. That is a problem that can only be fixed by switching to another browser, one that continues to support XP. I recommend Opera.
