Google Chrome ends support for Windows XP
starting April 2015
Today, when I opened Google Chrome browser in my Windows XP PC, a message was displaying there - "This computer will soon stop receiving Google Chrome updates becuase Windows XP and Windows Vista will no longer be supported."

And it is clear from their blog that Starting April 2016, Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Mac OS X 10.6, 10.7, and 10.8 will no longer receive updates and security fixes since these platforms are no longer actively supported by Microsoft and Apple. I have reproduced the full post from chrome's blog post below.

"Earlier this year, we announced that Google Chrome would continue support for Windows XP through the remainder of 2015.  At that time, we strongly encouraged users on older, unsupported platforms such as Windows XP to update to a supported, secure operating system. Such older platforms are missing critical security updates and have a greater potential to be infected by viruses and malware.
Today, 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.
If you are still on one of these unsupported platforms, we encourage you to move to a newer operating system to ensure that you continue to receive the latest Chrome versions and features."
