When Google releases new versions of Chrome, it will be the same as the last time it was updated, writes John Gruber

Posted November 22, 2018 07:58:53The last time Google updated its browser, Chrome 49, the company announced it would be the last major version of the browser to include a version number that would identify the current version of Chrome.

This year, the Google team is going back to that tradition, announcing that the next major version (or possibly next major release) will be Chrome 55, which will be released sometime in early 2019.

But Google is also releasing a “bugfix release” for Chrome 55 to address bugs that may have been introduced with the release.

In this update, Google will be releasing a new version number for the browser that will be different from the last version.

In other words, it’s the same version number, but with a new “bugfixes” number.

So while this isn’t the end of the world for the next version of Google Chrome, you may not be able to update your computer to that version.

Google says it is planning to release a new release of Chrome 55 in early October, but if you have a computer running the older Chrome version, you can try out the new release to see if it fixes any bugs.

As with the previous bugfix release, the next release will be free of any changes and will be for Chrome 54.

So if you’re a Chrome user, the only way to get a fresh install of Chrome is to update to the new version.
