Google's Unannounced Chrome Change Aggravates Users

Tom Warren writes for The Verge, “Google left thousands of machines in businesses with broken Chrome browsers this week, following a silent experimental change. Business users accessing Chrome through virtual machine environments like Citrix kept seeing white screens on open Chrome tabs, blocking access to the browser and leaving it totally unresponsive.” IT administrators and Chrome users had not been warned about the change, and Google decided to roll it back, “following multiple reports from businesses with thousands of users affected.”

Warren reports, “One IT admin that alerted The Verge to the issue said ‘we felt that this is a shady thing that Google can update Chrome silently without announcing anything and can impact 100,000+ people on a whim.’ Those concerns are mirrored by hundreds of replies on Google’s support forum, the bug tracker thread, and on Twitter and Reddit.”
