SlimJet's x64 build works on XP x64 Edition too.

That is true about slimjet uses chromium codes . But Slimjet posted that they will support those older OS systems untill The Chromium codes are to big enough for the OS to handle . Or you could just stay on the latest version before that happens . Slimjet gives you the option to update or not to . Not like Google chrome that updates are auto . Again it is true about Opera 37 not supporting But Opera 36 will always support .Slimjet does not use that much memory right now I am using 1.32 gigs of ram But when I use google chrome or FF even opera The gigs can go as hi as 1.75 gigs of ram

Yes, I don't like forced updates myself - if people want to stay on one version, let them!

I'm currently deciding to use SeaMonkey mostly because it's a browser and also has a WYSIWYG HTML editor as part of it (the original Mozilla Application Suite). Also the fact I found a really nice looking Cammy skin for SM, but Firefox has only one skin for an old version of it and PM has no skin for Cammy...

I tried sea monkey but did not like it to much . The best one that i like now is the slimjet it's on version 49 same as google chrome but no warnings that it will stop support .. It seems much faster

I do also use SlimJet myself, as well as SeaMonkey, I do mostly use SeaMonkey because of the WYSIWYG editor, I believe it also has an IRC client, and I'm a mod on a channel, so yeah.
The features in SJ are pretty good too, although I wish you could download Dailymotion videos.

I'm trying to see if you can place tabs below the toolbar in SlimJet. I used SeaMonkey for years. A great classic browser. But I used to hide the menu bar, and place text labels beside small buttons with the Firefox 2 theme. There was an unofficial x64 build that I used to install on XP x64 Edition, but now it requires Windows 7 or higher, so even Vista is out for x64.

Sniff! :(

Getting back to Chrome, support has now ended.

The last Chrome update pushed to Vista and XP was 49.0.2623.112. If you are still using Chrome, my best advice is to stop right away! Install one of the browsers discussed in this thread that still supports Vista and familiarize yourself with it.

I've been following the comments at https://chrome.googleblog.com/2015/11/updates-to-chrome-platform-support.html, and I get the impression that many Chrome diehards intend to persevere, and want nothing more than to make the end-of-support warnings go away. In case any reader might fit that description, it has been reported that Chrome 50 (the current stable release for supported platforms) can be successfully installed on Vista using the offline installer. It has some security fixes not found in Chrome 49; and perhaps more importantly, it might not be subjected to as much scrutiny by cybercriminals as Chrome 49 almost inevitably will be. I would therefore encourage you to download the current offline installer - but Chrome 50 will very likely be the last version that can be installed on Vista. Beyond that, it is very important to find a way to manually update your Flash Player. This looks helpful: https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/chrome/H2_TOyaSEZs. Good luck!

I tried to install Google Chrome 50 from their webpage .while downloading it a error popped up saying that my OS was not supported .. I do not think the offline would work either because of the codes that they use to put in ...
