The Google Chrome web browser has by far the most users of all web browsers. This is not surprising as it is very easy to use, fast, secure and of course very flexible. This allows you to install extensions that can further improve the user experience and simplify everyday web browsing. While we’ve been able to use the Chrome web browser on older PCs so far, this won’t be the case any time soon.
With the release of Chrome Web Version 89, Google will give up support for all computer systems with processors that do not support SSE3 (Supplemental Streaming SIMD Extensions 3). So far, the minimum requirement has been support for the SSE2 command set. In practice, this means that computers equipped with processors older than the Intel Core 2 Duo or AMD Athlon 64 will no longer be able to run new versions of the Chrome web browser.
Although it will still be possible to run older versions of the Google Chrome web browser on older computers, users will be deprived of many. Namely, they will not receive new functionalities and improvements, and at the same time they will no longer receive security fixes. In practice, this means that users of computers equipped with, for example, Intel Atom or Intel Celeor M processors will be increasingly exposed to cyber attacks. Therefore, these users will have no choice but to replace their computer system or use another supported web browser.
