    Well, Just had a message pop up that Chrome will no longer be supported on my Mac.

    Day by day I'm slowly getting forced to upgrade.

    You've served me well iMac Core-Duo and Snow Leopard.

    :-(

    Why won't it be supported?

    If its still running, and you're only losing out on updates, keep using it until it stops working.

    FWIW, I use Safari on my Mac anyways.

    If you liked Chrome, but it's no longer supported under 10.6, you might try the Epic Privacy Browser, which is available here:
    https://www.epicbrowser.com

    What Epic is:
    It's the Chrome "engine", but with ALL the "google stuff" stripped out. But there's more to it.
    Epic is designed from the ground up to protect user privacy. It will block trackers, and do "secure searching", and even more, it can "cloak" your IP address (make you invisible to other web sites).

    It's free to download and use.

    It works on my MacBook Pro, which uses 10.6.8.

    Epic looks good thanks for that!

    It says chrome will no longer support 32 bit, so I'm kinda stuck.

    How's Firefox on Macs nowadays?

    I don't have any issues with Firefox and I use it on occasion myself. Normally, I use Safari though. At the office on my Windows PC, Firefox is my main browser.
