Google urged Chromium developers to ditch Windows 7


Eleven months after Microsoft officially ended technical support for the Windows 7 operating system, Google finally called on the Chromium developers to stop using the OS.

“I don’t remember the decision to require Windows 10, but it seems inevitable that it will happen at some point, and perhaps even now. There have been several glitches in Windows 7 lately, and ultimately it becomes costly to fix them, ” said engineer Bruce Dawson at Google.

In a new notice, Google has confirmed that Windows 7 is no longer suitable for Chromium development and Windows 10 is now a requirement. Since Windows 7 is now an unsupported operating system, a special error message will be displayed when developers try to create their own applications for Chromium.

The notice is for developers only, and Chromium-based browsers will continue to work with Windows 7. Developers still using Chromium should either upgrade to Windows 10 or try applications like Process Explorer to detect Chromium issues on Windows 7.
