Google postpones end of support for Chrome Manifest V2 to January 2024

Google has delayed the end of support for the Chrome Manifest V2 protocol by a year. If earlier it was planned to end it in January 2023, now the end of support has been postponed to January 2024.

Google postpones end of support for Chrome Manifest V2 to January 2024

In January 2023, test versions of Chrome 112 (Canary, Dev, Beta branches) will take part in the experiment: Manifest V2 will be temporarily disabled there, and V3 will be made mandatory. After that, the Chrome Web Store will recommend extensions that support the new protocol.

Then, in June 2023, V2 support will be disabled in the stable version of Chrome 115. After that, the app store will prohibit the publication of add-ons with the second version of the manifest, and previously published add-ons will be transferred to the “Unlisted” category. And in January 2024, add-ons from Manifest V2 will be completely removed from the store, and the browser will lose the corresponding settings.

Because of this, developers will have to change how ad blockers and other applications that use Manifest V2 work. It is for this reason that the new version was criticized immediately after the announcement, as it limited the ability to block content on the webRequest API using uBlock Origin and Ghostery.

Note that Mozilla will also use the Manifest v3 version in the Firefox browser, but without the blocking webRequest API.

Elon Musk promised to release an alternative smartphone on one

Billionaire Elon Musk has promised to release his own smartphone model if Apple and Google remove the Twitter app from their respective App Store and Google Play stores, respectively.

Elizabeth Wheeler, an American political commentator, author and podcast host, asked Elon Musk this question:

“If Apple and Google remove Twitter from their app stores, Elon Musk should release his own smartphone. Half the country would happily give up biased, spying iPhones and Androids. For a person who builds rockets for Mars, building a smartphone would be easy, right?”

Of course, I hope that it will not come to this, but, yes, if there is no other way out, I will make an alternative phone.
