[Chrome] Try to keep supporting the latest version of Chrome for XP, Vista, and OS X 10.6-10.8

Following this news article I decided to extrapolate from the Chrome release schedule and determined that most likely, the last version of Chrome to support XP, Vista, or OS X 10.6-10.8 will be Chrome 50, released on 19 April 2016.

Whenever the final version of Chrome for those OSes is released, that version would be a good benchmark for compatibility going forward, so that people hanging on to those OSes will continue to have the best possible protection against the scourge of malvertising.

Another possibility, because the Chrome and Opera stores don't provide access to old versions of extensions, is to either provide the last AdBlock version that works on that version of Chrome as an unpacked extension, or to publish it as something like "AdBlock Legacy" with the note that it will not be developed further.

Most likely, if there's still sufficient interest in those older OSes, someone here will use the Right to Fork to continue to support Chrome ~50 going forward.

    Hi James,

    That's a good idea. I'll pass it to our developers for consideration. Thanks for the suggestion!
