  • To improve performance and reduce crashes on Windows, Google Chrome is going to block third-party software from injecting code into the browser.
  • On Windows, two-thirds of Chrome users have applications, like antivirus or accessibility tools, that interact with the Google browser.

  • Starting with Chrome 66 in April 2018, the browser will begin showing affected users a warning after a crash.
