Windows xp is no longer supported and some web pages will refuse you access. The google and gmail websites are examples but there will be more because it is not cost effective to support retired OSs. In some cases you may connect OK but, as time goes on, you will have more and more trouble.

and a lot of browers will no longer work in XP you may need to revert to an old version of IE8 for example.

You are still going online with Windows xp? It is almost 4 years since extended support for xp ended (8th April 2014) and I would be concerned about your security if I were you. Hackers, virus and malware writers have now had 4 years to come up with attacks on xp users. Just a thought.
