Google is back again. Oh! When they went back right? Yeah! Just two days back we wrote Chrome 8 first beta will be out next week. And we even got a news that Chrome 9 Build will start from November! What happened suddenly?
Here we got yet another Chromium version. First sightings of Chrome 9 are already here. Today Google moved their Chromium 8 tag to Chromium 9. Which indicated that Chrome 9 build started, though it may take as long as a couple of weeks before a dev channel build is released.
Chrome developers are currently working on the Chrome 8 beta which may go live as early as next week. This makes sense since the Google Chrome 7 beta has been promoted to the stable channel this week.
As you all know Google is working on its strategy on new Chrome version in every six weeks which cleared that we may see Chrome 9 by this year end or at least a beta version.
The stable version of Google Chrome 8 be available by the end of November, which means that Google Chrome 9 may be available by the end of the year, though that would be even faster than the new six-weeks development cycle Google recently switched to.
Chromium developer Jason Kersey hinted as before,
As part of our goal to make the 6 week release cycle feasible, we are working to keep developers time spent on each release branch as short as possible. This allows for more feature and bug work on the trunk, and more coverage of the trunk with dev channels. To achieve this, I’m working to shorten the beta cycle for this release as much as possible.
This hinted that Chromium 9 build will be started soon!
Well watch out this place for more info. We will be updating you every move of Chromium team!
