Support for XP ended almost 2 years ago.  As you’ve seen, more and more third-party software developers are releasing upgrades to their products that will no longer work with XP.  The handwriting has been on the wall for quite some time:   “Move to a newer operating system.”

It’s my understanding that Google has extended Chrome support for XP until this coming April.

At the moment, Firefox will still run on XP sp2 or later and Opera will also run on XP or later.  As far as I know, neither Mozilla nor Opera has announced when XP support will go away.

However, even though these browsers will have the latest versions of their own code — unlike IE, which only provides XP support through IE 8 — a web browser is only as
safe” as its underlying operating system.  For XP, that’s no longer very safe.
