Sliding on the runway

When landing with strong crosswind, some aircrafts seem to have no friction.
They easily slide off the runway.

I just landed at the gusty JFK with the B763, tried to correct allignment using the rudder but it didn’t help: the aircraft slided off the runway while pulling down the nose gear and I got a taxi speed violation.

What was your landing speed? Maybe you just landed to fast.

To be fair I doubt this mistake would be made by @Laurens since they are an IF expert.

The slowest I can get the B763 in heavy crosswind is around 120-130 and I always crab the Aircraft for a final rudder adjustment, then kill my speed to land. In my opinion its the best way of counteracting the wind in the smaller type planes.
