Currently, Windows 7 runs on over 11% of all Windows systems worldwide.  Which is pretty crazy for an operating system that launched in 2009, reached end of support in 2015 and end of extended report in 2020.  Now, officially, Windows 7 is no longer supported at all.

Microsoft Edge 109 and Google Chrome 110 will be the last browser to work on Windows 7, and will no longer receive any security updates.

CU*Answers Web Services strives to develop websites that work for the majority of members by following web standards as practically as possible.  This also helps with keeping your website accessible with WCAG.  Officially, CU*Answers Web Services only supports the 2 most recent major versions of Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge and Apple Safari on currently supported operating systems.

Last week Matt Mullenweg, the CEO of Automattic, the company behind WordPress, delivered his annual address to the WordPress community.  This annual event called “The State of the Word” gives the WordPress community an update on what’s to come in the next year, as well as,  a little bit of the current state of WordPress.  WordPress continues to be a popular choice for websites and is also growing faster than ever, currently powering 43% of websites according to W3Techs and 32% according to Builtwith.1

Also, next year the WordPress web application is turning 20 years old, which Mullenweg noted that not many software projects make it that long.  Coincidentally, CU*Answers Web Services is also celebrating our 20th year in 2023.  CU*Answers Web Services launched our first credit union websites all the way back in 2002.  And we began using WordPress for all our site builds in 2006.
