Google Chrome silent update generates thousands with non-responsive browsers

This change would have been perfect for normal user machines, however, it would throw many errors while being used in a virtual machine.

Google recently launched a silent experimental change in its Chrome web browser, which provided thousands of companies with non-responsive browsers and no solution. Companies that use Chrome in their shared virtual machine environments were shown a white screen on the tabs along with an unresponsive browser.

This error led them to flood the Google support forums and the Chromium bug tracker. To which the company now responded by stating that they had been testing an experimental beta change for five months, which was now done live for the stable version.

According to a report of The edge, Google had implemented an experimental change in the browser, which will reduce the use of resources when the browser is not in use.

This change would have been perfect for normal user machines, however, it would throw many errors while being used in a virtual machine.

Google Chrome will soon identify and tag websites that load slowly

A user in the Chromium error tracker declares that while running Chrome on a Citrix server, the browser will stop updating the screen until a user unlocks their session on this same Citrix server. This led people to believe that the problem was only with Citrix servers, however, subsequent reports revealed that the problem was more complex and also affected other virtual machine environments.

Google has now responded to the public protest and reversed the change. It may launch a stable version in the future, however, it has not declared anything about it.
