Windows XP has reached its end of life after 12 years, 6 months, and 12 days. What does this mean for the 28% of Internet users still using Windows XP? It is time for an upgrade. Windows XP was a popular Operating System for consumers, but it wasn’t always that way. Read more about the Windows XP love/hate relationship here.

Along with Windows XP, Internet Explorer 6 has lost support from Microsoft.  Internet Explorer 6 ended the first great Web Browser War, destroying Netscape Navigator’s market share. IE 6 was used by 90% of web users at the height of its popularity. Learn more about the history of Internet Explorer 6 here.

Web Services recommends remaining Windows XP users switch to Google Chrome immediately. Google Chrome can be downloaded here.
