According to “computerworld”, Google today said that it would stop serving updates to Chrome for Android on devices running "Ice Cream Sandwich," or Android 4.0.x, in mid-April.
Those ICS users who rely on Chrome will be left without a way to patch security vulnerabilities in the browser, and will have to make a decision: Run Chrome nonetheless; move to a still-supported browser, like Firefox, Opera or a version of the old "stock" Android browser many device makers preloaded on their phones; update Android, if that's possible on the device; or acquire a new smartphone or tablet.
This was the first time that Google pulled support for Chrome on Android, as the browser's minimum OS requirement has always been ICS.
The last version of Chrome served to ICS devices will be v.42, which Google expects to release in the middle of April. "After Chrome 42, users on ICS devices can continue to use Chrome but won't get further updates," said Lutikas.
One alternative to Chrome for ICS users is Mozilla's Firefox, which requires Android 2.3 (aka "Gingerbread") and later; another is Opera Software's Opera, which runs on ICS and later.
