“Google Chrome on Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) will stop receiving any updates following Chrome 21. This includes new features, security fixes and stability updates. […] If you already have Chrome installed, you can still use Chrome, but it will no longer be auto-updated. In addition, you’ll be unable to install Chrome on any Mac still running 10.5 (which is an OS X version also no longer being updated by Apple). While we understand this is an inconvenience, we are making this change to ensure we can continue to deliver a safe, secure, and stable Chrome for the most Mac users possible.” I’m okay with this – Snow Leopard was released in August 2009, so it’s been three years since the last machines with Leopard shipped. On top of that, Apple’s prices for new releases are so low, there’s really no excuse not to have upgraded by this point (unless Apple decided to obsolete your hardware, in which case, well, that’s what you get when you buy Apple or Android or Windows Phone).

Yeah, the only people I can imagine are legitimately affected by this would be PPC users.
