Usually third party browsers are popular for those using older versions of an operating system. Browsers such as Mozilla, Opera, and Chrome tend to stick around much longer on older operating systems than browsers such as Appleís Safari or Microsoftís Internet Explorer. After some time though, even third party browsers begin to move on and Googleís Chrome seems to be doing the same thing with Appleís Mac OS X Leopard.
According to Jason Kersey from Google Chrome:
The Dev channel has been updated to 22.0.1201.0 for Windows, Mac, Linux and Chrome Frame[Ö] Please note, on Mac we now require 10.6 or higher, and this release will not be available if you are on 10.5 or lower.
For those of you who didnít already know, Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard was launched in October 2007 and hasnít seen an update since August 2009. It seems like itís time to move on, so the move isnít a surprise. For those of you with the old 32-bit Mac, you can still update to Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard via Amazon so you arenít completely stuck, at least not yet.
