The best Web browser to use with Windows XP is Google’s Chrome browser. While Internet Explorer is the default browser for XP, most Web professionals consider Chrome to be faster and, more importantly, much safer for browsing on Windows XP.

There have been three major updates to Windows since Windows XP, but XP still remains one of the most heavily used operating systems in the world. It originally launched in 2001 and was supported by Windows for 13 years. As of April 8, 2014, support and updates for Windows XP are no longer available. This makes the choice of browser important for those who choose to stay with XP, as Internet Explorer for XP will no longer be updated.
