I wonder when Chrome gets to the installed correctly in Windows. Now it just puts itself in app data and links to it more or less. Other software doesn't know its there. Many times I want to open a link through Opera with Chrome (feature in Opera). But as long as Chrome does this, Opera doesn't recognize it as an web application. Now it have to be added manually by going into the registry.

Has there been any major changes since Version 14 apart from User profiles? I miss the old days when we got major features. I mean, they mentioned a new download UI verisons ago, still hasn't appeared even in Chromium.

Yeah, the flag to enable it is there. But all it has done for the last 2/3 versions is hide the downloads shelf, the new UI still is not there.

      Microsoft releases Windows 10 build 20262.1010 to the Dev channel
      by Rich Woods



      Today, Microsoft released a new cumulative update for Windows Insiders in the Dev channel. After releasing build 20262 earlier this week, you can now download build 20262.1010. According to the team, there's nothing new and this update only exists to test out the servicing pipeline.

      In other words, it's just like a regular old build of Windows 10 that's arrived in the Dev channel over the last month. Microsoft switched to the fe_release branch last month, removing some existing features and not adding anything new. This is typical for when the company is about to release a big feature update, but that's not the case here. In fact, the company was clear that fe_release does not represent a feature update.

      It's just sort of going through the motions, and Microsoft has been silent on what's coming for Windows 10. The Windows Insider Program that was supposed to be the bridge of communication between the company and enthusiasts hasn't said a word; only that right now, Insiders aren't testing anything meaningful. Indeed, not only are these builds not giving you anything new to test out, but they're not even coming from a development branch, so they don't actually mean anything. And if they do mean something, Microsoft hasn't said.

      So if you're on build 20262, you're going to get KB4594431 today. It's a meaningless cumulative update for a meaningless build of Windows 10.

      Google Chrome now supports ARM Macs, and Edge support is coming soon
      by Rich Woods

      Last week, Apple finally unveiled its new ARM-powered Macs, and now they're hitting the market. That also means that it's time for app developers to start optimizing their apps for it. In fact, it's not such a simple task. Apps need to be recompiled for the new architecture, lest they deal with the performance impact of running in Apple's Rosetta 2 emulation.

      Google released its ARM64 Chrome browser today, and when downloading the browser, you'll be presented with an option to download the Intel or the Apple Silicon version. Since then, Microsoft has also confirmed that its Chromium-based Edge browser is on the way to supporting the Apple M1.

      Of course, this is sort of something that app developers have to do. Unlike Microsoft's ARM64 efforts, which feel like more of a side-project, Apple is transitioning its entire lineup to its own custom ARM processors. It's leaving behind Intel completely.

      A great example of this is that Google still hasn't released an ARM64 version of Chrome for Windows. And as we exclusively reported over a year ago now, Google has had ARM64 Chrome ready to go on Windows, but it just hasn't released it.

      Microsoft releases Windows 10 build 20262 to the Dev channel
      by Rich Woods



      Today, Microsoft is releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview build 20262, and unsurprisingly, there's nothing new. Ever since build 20246 was released in October, they've been coming from the fe_release branch. Typically, a release branch means that Microsoft is gearing up for a feature release, but that's not the case anymore.

      That first changed when Microsoft switched to minor H2 updates. It still used a release branch, just to sort of go through the motions. Now, things are even more confusing amid reports that 21H1 might be a minor update like 20H2 was, or it might not even happen at all in favor of the Windows 10X RTM.

      But of course, Microsoft isn't talking, defeating what was originally the point of the Windows Insider Program. It was supposed to not only be about early access to new features, but it was supposed to break down the barrier of communication between Microsoft and its enthusiasts. Eventually, it all boiled down to secrecy from Microsoft, and enthusiasts just being sent to the Feedback Hub.

      While it won't be clear what's going on with 21H1 until we see new builds in the Beta channel or Microsoft makes an announcement, the Dev channel should return to the rs_prerelease branch next week.

      While there are no new features in this build, there are fixes and known issues. Here's what got fixed:

      Here's what's still broken:

      As always, you can grab today's build via Windows Update. If you're not on the Dev channel yet, you can enroll through the Windows Insider Program tab in Settings.

      Google pulls Apple Silicon-optimized Chrome after crash reports, to re-release it today
      by Abhay Venkatesh



      After years of rumors, Apple finally announced at its annual developer conference this year that it will be moving to its custom ARM-based processors to power its Macs. The firm launched the first Apple M1-powered devices earlier this month. While the new processors can run x86-based apps through a translation layer, developers have begun optimizing their apps for the platform. One of those apps is Google Chrome.

      The search giant began rolling out a new version of the browser with native support for Apple Silicon yesterday, along with the general rollout of version 87 to all users. However, the firm had to halt the rollout and pull download links for the ARM-optimized offering due to some bugs and unforeseen problems. Mark Chang, a project manager at the company, said on Twitter that the rollout was paused to “keep [its] users in a good place” and that the release is expected to resume today.

      For those that already installed the native version of the browser and are experiencing crashes, the firm has posted a support article with workarounds. Users can also uninstall the browser completely and reinstall the version of Intel chips until the new version is made available again. The support article also notes that the firm has “identified a fix” and is working to re-release it soon.

      For Windows on ARM users, however, there is no news on when the ARM version of the browser will be released. The firm reportedly has had a version of the platform ready for release for a while now.

      Google Chrome 87.0.4280.66 (offline installer)
      by Razvan Serea



      The web browser is arguably the most important piece of software on your computer. You spend much of your time online inside a browser: when you search, chat, email, shop, bank, read the news, and watch videos online, you often do all this using a browser.

      Google Chrome is a browser that combines a minimal design with sophisticated technology to make the web faster, safer, and easier. Use one box for everything--type in the address bar and get suggestions for both search and Web pages. Thumbnails of your top sites let you access your favorite pages instantly with lightning speed from any new tab. Desktop shortcuts allow you to launch your favorite Web apps straight from your desktop. Chrome has many useful features built in, including automatic full-page translation and access to thousands of apps, extensions, and themes from the Chrome Web Store.

      Google Chrome is one of the best solutions for Internet browsing giving you high level of security, speed and great features.

      Important to know! The offline installer links do not include the automatic update feature.
