Google hopes to make Chrome less buggy with new "Early Stable" version

Google has announced a big change in the release schedule of its Chrome web browser. With Chrome 110, the company is introducing a new "Early Stable" version that will be out a week before the final "Stable" release. However, the Early version will not be for everyone and Google says it will be rolled out to a small percentage of users. The software giant, though, does not clearly mention how small this percentage exactly is.

Google explains that this change is meant to address major bugs or issues that are discovered in the Early Stable release such that the bug does not impact a wider user base. This makes a lot of sense as Chrome has the biggest market share.

On its Chrome Developers website, it writes:

We are making a change to the release schedule for Chrome. From Chrome 110, the initial release date to stable will be one week earlier. This early stable version will be released to a small percentage of users, with the majority of people getting the release a week later at the normal scheduled date, this will also be the date the new version is available from the Chrome download page.

The release schedule has also been outlined:

For Chrome 110 the key dates will be:

  • Beta: January 12, 2023
  • Early Stable: February 1, 2023
  • Stable: February 7, 2023
