New versions of Chrome and Chrome OS are frozen due to coronavirus. User reaction was mixed

The developers of the most popular Chrome browser and the Chrome OS operating system appealed to all users on the social network Twitter, saying that the company has suspended the development of new versions of Chrome and Chrome OS.

The reason is that now many companies have changed the work schedule of their employees in connection with the coronavirus pandemic. Someone was sent on vacation, someone works not at the office, but at home.

This caused a mixed user response. Some believe that in this situation, all developers should stop thinking about serious innovations, only being concerned with the security and stability of their software solutions.

Others expressed their indignation at this decision, saying that the current version of Chrome OS has a number of serious bugs, in particular, with the video conferencing function, on which many users now depend on quarantine.
