I have been using WinXP for fifteen years and it works perfectly. In the year 2015 Microsoft made an agreement with Google to stop updating their browser "Chrome" unless the users upgrade their computer's operating system to Window 7 or higher. Well, the agreement finally happened in April 2017. Today is 19 April 2017 and I am no longer able to update my Google Chrome browser. That last version for WinXP is 49. The current version of Google Chrome is 57. Soon, websites like YouTube will demand that I upgrade my operating system and browser before I'm allowed to view a video. http://www.redmondpie.com/google-to-discontinue-chrome-on-windows-xp-vista-os-x-10.8-and-earlier/ It appears that Microsoft has formed a monopoly with Google and YouTube. Microsoft says to them, "When we all require computer owners to upgrade their operating system it will be a windfall of profits what is worth millions of dollars in revenue for us. Simply require that your users upgrade their computer's operating system and you will be handsomely rewarded."
