Chrome to Drop Support for Leopard

It's been almost five years since Snow Leopard's release. Since the upgrade is only about $30, there's almost no excuse for you to remain on OS X Leopard, unless you have an attachment to the OS or you're using old hardware.

Whatever the case, Google's Chrome team has announced that it will be dropping Leopard support with the update to Chrome 22 (ver. 22.0.1201.0). Chrome 22's already been released to developers and should be hitting the public in a few months.

If you're fond of using Google Chrome, don't want to be outdated, and are still rocking Leopard, maybe it's time for an upgrade. Apple's releasing Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8) soon, so you may want to consider at least bumping up to Snow Leopard, if not Lion.

    I don't think many Macs run Leopard anymore, but some government and educational institutions may. I guess they'll just end up switching over to Firefox if they don't want to upgrade.

    Or switch to Windows due to EPEAT non-compliant

    i guess they will end up buying the new MBP rather than changing the browser and upgrading the OS.
    Apple users have more money than sense

    Why would a hardcore Apple fan use a non-Apple product in the first place?
    Seriously, Chrome is a bit overrated and hyped anyway, and MAC people are rather fond of Apple's designs etc.
    It seems to me -a PC guy- that the combination is a non starter.

    ...because Safari has more (security) holes than a slice of swiss cheese....

    No, just drop Chrome. Google is a leftist tool and I don't trust them.

    My grandmother was complaining about this because she likes Chrome, but refuses to pay for a software upgrade for her Mac Mini LOL I do give her credit that she's an original die hard Mac fan, and it's the only computer OS that she's completely comfortable with.
