Google Issues Upgrade Warning For 2 Billion Chrome Users
In a shock move first spotted by ChromeUnboxed, Google has warned users that the the impact of COVID-19 means it has had to scrap the next major release of Chrome entirely.
03/25 Update: Microsoft has now followed in Google's steps, confirming
it will also cancel the next major version of Edge. Given that Edge is
now built on a Chromium core like Google Chrome, Microsoft had little
choice but to follow suit. "In light of the current
circumstances, the Edge team will pause updating the Stable channel to
Edge 81 consistent with the Chromium Project. We are committed to
continued security and stability updates to Edge 80. We’ll have more to
share on this next week," the company explained. Opera is also based on
Chromium and while it has not made an announcement to stall new
versions, that seems like a matter of time. Firefox, on the other hand,
is based on its own Gecko engine and it remains to be seen whether the
company chooses to continue releasing new versions at this time.
