Also where did you get the xp SP2 ISO?

XP x64 SP2. It doesn't have a SP3 because it was based on Server 2003 x64. tl;dr, the update models were different. serv2003 came later, so it never needed a third sp.
google is your friend

I think it was 52 ESR at the time. I used Classic Theme Restorer and a theme to make it look like Firefox 2.x for a more nostalgic look for the recording.

@evancunningham Its actually a fork off Chrome called Slimjet 10. I used it in this video since they have the Chromium 50 engine working in XP, while Google officially dropped XP at v. 49.
Also, thats awesome!! I've been looking for something like for years. Added the link to the description.

Yandex Browser managed to get Chromium 57 to work in XP, though they stopped backporting it after April 2017. I believe Chromium 60 is supplied by Chinese-based UC Browser, too. I recommend the Goanna version of K-Meleon myself but have Yandex Browser installed too.

Interesting. I've recently tested the new Goanna build of K-Meleon. It works rather well. The browser I recommend is Pale Moon though. Although officially discontinued for XP, a dedicated user started a fork.

There's also Advanced Chrome, which is derived from Chromium 54.x. It supports XP through 10.

This list was made by a friend of mine. Some of it applies to XP as well, browsers section namely;

@11ryanc How did you change the chrome toolbar icons? I really want to!

Also, you don't need to do the stuff in this tutorial because I found a new site that has multiple versions of Old Google: http://oldgoogle.890m.com/
Please note that it can have dead URLs in places, hopefully that gets fixed soon.

@mattwo Don't get any ideas. I absolutely do not recommend doing this. You sacrifice just about every feature in exchange for a retro cosmetic. But I felt compelled to make this tutorial anyway since most people aren't even aware this stripped version of the site exist. It was more of a reference than anything.
I personally use DuckDuckGo. Mainly for the !bang search commands. (I search google 60-70% of the time)

It's not like YouTube, which does look legitimately worse now contrast to the layout they had before they changed it to better support mobile devices... And the one before that was decent too but eh I think people have too much nostalgia goggles with that one.

Why would you want to do this? You lose some of the convenient functionality they added just for a dated aesthetic that's way too minimalistic...
