google chrome access windows os vmware

Google Chrome is one of our favorite web browsers for Windows. One of the things we love about it is that it automatically updates in the background. You won’t get any annoying notifications about updates or pop-ups you to restart your browser. Everything is happening silently and working as expected.

The same behavior also applies to extensions for Google Chrome. There are tons of Chrome extensions that add functionality to your browser, giving you another reason to use Google Chrome. You have great extensions that can improve Gmail, save your YouTube videos, and even block cricket and other web themes you don’t like.

Mozilla Firefox can do the same, but with a big difference. Chrome extensions just update themselves in the background, unlike many plugins in Mozilla Firefox that require you to restart the browser to manually apply the latest update.

Like most things in life, automatic updates of extensions don’t always work. Recently, one of our favorite YouTube Google Chrome extensions – Streamus – stopped working. An update to the YouTube code caused Streamus to crash. As it turns out, the developers have found and fixed the issue and released an updated version of Streamus, but the latest update is review by Google.

Even after the extension was approved, for some reason the automatic update didn’t kick in. Chrome updates extensions on its own schedule, and if an extension is broken, you don’t want to wait for the update process to begin. Thankfully, there is a workaround for this situation.
