Google Chrome will no longer support Windows 7

It’s been almost three years since official Windows 7 support ended, and only now is Google Chrome preparing to say goodbye.

Chrome 109, due out in January 2023, will be the last version to support Windows 7. So will Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. That is, the next Chrome 110 update will require Windows 10 or 11.

Representatives of Google commented on this situation and said that there would be no more updates for these old versions of Windows, not even security patches.

Google’s open-source version of Chrome, known as Chromium, serves as the basis for many other web browsers. Without Google’s support, most Chromium browsers also stop working on older versions of Windows if they haven’t already.

Yesterday, Microsoft confirmed that Edge 109 would be the last version of the web browser on Windows 7, 8/8.1, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, and Windows Server 2012 R2 platforms.

More than a month ago, Vivaldi said it would follow the Chromium support schedule for older versions of Windows. This works because Vivaldi is based on Chromium, and they will get these updates removing support for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 the next time they update the Chromium source to Chromium 110. That will be the basis for the next version of Vivaldi after Vivaldi 5.6.
