If you use Google Chrome then support for this browser, in XP/VISTA, is ready to disappear!

So what alternatives do we use. Any ideas thoughts and info. Please elaborate!

Thanks: TP

I'll probably stick with Chrome until it actually stops working on XP, I guess there's more of a security threat once the updates stop coming. As much as I like XP it's probably time to give up on it and move on.... my 2 old XP machines are so slow now. Plus I've had no problems with either of my Win 7 machines, also I've heard that the initial problems with Win 8 seem to have been fixed long ago.

The only reason I keep XP now is that some of the track making tools seem to run better on it than Win7.

Firefox works well with XP and everything else. Lots of nice features. There's a little book button in the address bar that allows you to see just the text of a web page with nothing else.

I've always used Firefox under XP, Vista and W7. Been using it for years, no complaints.

Thanks Guys for your thoughts and info !

Firefox sounds like the way to go for my old Vista.
