    Opera, which is Chromium-based, announced that the last version for XP will be Opera 36, but support will continue with security and crash fixes. This is probably the best choice if you want to migrate from Chrome with few hassles and no radical changes.

    Comodo IceDragon

    Free Windows Website

    IceDragon is a browser based on Firefox and customized by Comodo. The official website automatically offers for XP users the version, based on Firefox 40.0.2: it works great, but if you want to use it the first thing you have to do is blocking the automatic update by going in Settings/Advanced/Update/Never check for updates.
    If you don't block it, the program will search and download latest version of the browser, which is not compatible with Windows XP, and it will crash.


  • Lunascape icon


    Freemium Windows Android iPhone Android Tablet iPad Website

    Lunascape is a web browser that handles 3 different rendering engines: Trident (Internet Explorer), Gecko (old Firefox) and Webkit (Safari).
    Unfortunately it can be used on Windows XP with the Webkit engine only: Gecko seems to be no longer downloadable and Internet Explorer engine is basically unusable.


NOTE: I have not listed browsers with privacy and security issues, like Small Maxthon Cloud Browser iconMaxthon Cloud Browser and Small UC Browser iconUC Browser, that are still compatible with Windows XP but may not be safe.
