As you all most likely know, Google Chrome will no longer be supported after April this year for users of Windows XP Home. I believe Google will continue supporting the Pro version, but for how long, who knows ?
My solution as under. No problems at all and I am delighted with it.
I have used Google Chrome for many years as my default browser, but now Google is withdrawing support for Windows XP home, I have changed to Opera.
Opera is a mirror image of Chrome, in fact once I got my bookmarks bar arranged identical to Chrome, I can find no difference. All my Chrome bookmarks have been imported together with all my passwords, so that the username and password is automatically entered on all my sites just like Chrome. Opera also has a toolbar portion of the URL bar, which works identical to Chrome.
The close similarity between Opera and Chrome is so close, I cannot believe it.
I can get any of the Chrome webstore extensions added to Opera and they work fine.
Quite honestly, since Opera is Chrome based, I find it has no operational differences and no loss of Chrome facilities and like it better. In fact Opera is much faster on response, which may be due to its relatively low market share, as opposed to the entire world population being stuck on a grossly overloaded Chrome.
It is also said that because Opera in relatively low in market share, browser security is much higher, due to hackers not being so much attracted to it.
So Google Chrome do have a nice day and bone off !
