Supermium: Browser for PCs with older systems is based on Chromium

As technology advances rapidly, many users still find themselves stuck with older operating systems such as Windows XP, Vista and 7. As recently as 2023, Google has ended support for the Google Chrome browser for Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 systems. Shortly afterwards, in 2024, Microsoft announced that it would also stop releasing updates for your Edge browser for these same systems, remembering that both are based on Chromium, the engine of several internet browsers. However, this is where Supermium comes in, a modern Chromium-based browser that supports a wide range of Windows operating systems, keeping them relevant and functional in today’s internet age.

Supermium is an interesting initiative that offers a solution for users who still need to use older operating systems, such as Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 and 8.1, but want to access modern internet resources. By adapting Chromium, the same base used by Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge, the browser makes it possible to browse modern websites, such as Gmail and social networks, on machines with these older operating systems.

Although it is a very good alternative, it is always important to highlight that using unsupported operating systems can present security and compatibility risks. Therefore, it must be done with caution and considering the limitations and vulnerabilities involved.

Projects like Supermium demonstrate the development community adapting to the specific needs of users who cannot afford it, or simply do not want to change systems. This is a creative solution to extending the life of older hardware. If you want to download the latest version of Supermium, you can download directly from the project on GitHub.
