There is no need to prove the popularity of either Windows or Chrome. For the former, Windows 7 also has a market share to consider (still), so it’s no surprise that Google has once again changed the date for users of this system.
Although Microsoft understandably prints Windows 11 by all means, many have stayed with Windows 7 and will not have a direct upgrade available to them. Google also seems to have the fate of these users at heart, so it announced last January that it would support the Windows 7 version of the Chrome browser by July 15, 2021. And when that deadline came, he made another gesture (because of the pandemic, by the way): it was extended until January 15, 2022.
That deadline is pretty close, but now Windows 7 users can breathe a sigh of relief. Google has given them another year, and support for Chrome on Windows 7 will end on January 15, 2023, at the earliesIt’st’s not yet entirely clear what level of support Google will provide for Chrome under Windows 7.
However, these are likely bug and security fixes and not new featureIt’st’s also good to know that Microsoft had officially discontinued support for Windows 7 Home on January 14, 2020. Businesses and enterprise customers can subscribe to Extended Security Updates (ESU), which releases security updates on Windows 7 devices for up to three years.
However, Microsoft has also announced that it will extend this support until January 2023 at the latest.
