Default XP questions

Been a while since I used XP.

I know many browsers will no longer run on XP.

What else won't run anymore?

And it stopped getting security updates.

I would think that since it was around so long, there shouldn't be that many security flaws.

Just curious,

I am still running XP on several machines. Firefox 47 and Internet
Exploder 8 still run OK. A few things don't work like the version of
Media Player that can talk to a Samsung TV and streaming Showtime but
most stuff still runs OK. I put a 7 machine on the TV to deal with
that.
I also have troubles networking with the 7 machine. Seven will not
talk to my W/98 at all and I can't pull files from the 7 machine from
XP but the 7 machine will pull XP files so it is no big deal.
