Gmail no longer supporting Chrome Browser version 53 and below

Starting February 8, 2017, we will show a banner at the top of the Gmail interface for users who are still on Google Chrome Browser v53 and below to encourage upgrading to the latest version of Chrome, currently on version 55. Chrome Browser v55 contains several important security updates. Gmail users that are still on Windows XP and Windows Vista are the most likely to be affected, because v49 was the last released version which supported those operating systems. As previously announced in April 2015 and November 2015, these systems are no longer maintained by Microsoft, and we strongly encourage you to migrate to more secure and supported systems.

Slowly, the older legacy systems are losing software support.
Having looked at some recent stats, XP still holds a 8.45% share, with Windows 10 at 25.19, and Windows 7 at 48.41%
I find that quite surprising XP is still up there. People just don't want to give up their hardware, as it still works. I would imagine there's still a lot of business users in there, too.

I don't know about businesses, but individual users usually have Windows "free" (OEM) with their computer / laptop , and they are certainly not interested in paying to upgrade their OS... Also, not everybody can run Windows 10. For example, I can't install Windows 10 on my own computer, because the graphic card is not supported ! So I am staying with Windows 7 (which is not bothering me, but at some point it will reach its end of life).
