Windows 7 End of Support
Microsoft ended support of Windows 7 on January 14, 2020. What about JxBrowser? For how long JxBrowser will support Windows 7?
JxBrowser and Google Chrome are based on Chromium. Google will continue to fully support Chrome on Windows 7® for a minimum of 24 months after Microsoft’s End of Life date, until at least January 15, 2022. We suppose that Chromium will support Windows 7 until this date too.
When we upgrade the Chromium build used by JxBrowser to the version that doesn’t support Windows 7 anymore, then we will exclude Windows 7 from the list of supported platforms.
According to release calendar, Windows 7 support will be dropped in Chromium 98 and higher.
UPD: In order to protect enterprises that are continuing their transition away from Windows 7, Chrome is extending support for Windows 7 through January 15, 2023 for critical security and stability updates. JxBrowser will support Windows 7 as long as Google Chrome/Chromium supports it.
