As Microsoft retires next Monday from all updates to the Windows 7 operating system, some associated PC hardware and software vendors are also on the move, such as NVIDIA’s decision to end Win7/8.1-drive maintenance for Quadro graphics on January 14. In response to user concerns, Google, the world’s largest browser provider, said it would also maintain Windows 7 Chrome for at least 18 months (July 15, 2021), all at no charge.
This means that security-sensitive users will be more secure to use Chrome in the next 18 months, at least much better than IE.
According to Data from Statcounter, Windows 7’s share of global PC users was 26.79 per cent at the end of last month, and even on a 1.5 bn aggregate basis, Windows 7 still has at least 400 million people in use, according to Statcounter.
Next month 4th, Google will release Chrome 80, the web pop-up notification interface is more friendly, stay tuned.
