I am currently using Windows XP. Yes I'm a dinosaur. But for my needs it is sufficient. I just check emails, come on to sites like these and download a show or movie once in awhile.
However now when I launch the chrome browser I get a message saying that it will stop supporting my computer as now there will be no more updates for those with Windows XP and Vista. My computer can't handle Windows 7 as it will slow it down tremendously. And it won't be usable.
Is there a browser I can still use with XP? I stopped using IE long time ago as I was having touble getting on some sites.
So hopefully someone here is using a different browser that works with XP.
I just changed the hard drive on this computer but it is not a question of money. I tried Windows 8 on a friends computer not too long ago and I didn't like it. If I wanted Windows 8 it would not run well on my current computer.For my needs XP runs great on my computer. No support for that and now Chrome too.
I will try Firefox again when the time comes. I tried it once and prefered Chrome.
I also highly recommend that you stop using Windows XP on an internet connected system. Security holes in Windows XP are being actively exploited to steal personal information, perform DDOS attacks and spread malware. A good option for older PCs is Lubuntu. Better still, bite the bullet and upgrade the PC or get a new one. Use Windows 7 or Windows 10. Windows 10 is much better and easier to use than Windows 8. Win10 will be supported for the foreseeable future.
... we’re announcing the end of Chrome’s support for Windows XP, as well as Windows Vista, and Mac OS X 10.6, 10.7, and 10.8, since these platforms are no longer actively supported by Microsoft and Apple. Starting April 2016, Chrome will continue to function on these platforms but will no longer receive updates and security fixes. ...
