Google’s Chrome continues to fight against autoplay content, pop-ups, low quality adds and unwanted redirects. The next step taken is a plan for 2018 which has as main goal reducing Chrome crashes due to third-party apps and software on Windows PC.

Google has big plans for Windows Chrome

After observing that two-thirds of Chrome users also install third-party apps such as antivirus software, Google has big plans. To help Chrome users get rid of sudden crashed and unwanted plug-ins, Chrome has plans of blocking third-party code injection on Windows.

In 2018 a three-phased plan for blocking injections will start for Windows Chrome.

The Three phase plan designed by Google

Chrome will be updated next year with a block code injection.

  • The first phase takes place in April 2018. Chrome will start warning users after they suffered a crash and let them know that software is injection code into the browser. Chrome users will also receive guiding to remove that unwanted software.
  • The second phase will begin in July 2018 and the plan is for Chrome to block third-party software from injecting codes. In the case Chrome is not starting due to the blocking, the browser will restart and show a warning guiding the user on how to remove the unwanted software.
  • January 2019 is when the third phase of the plan will begin. Chrome wants to block code injections for good.

Some third-party software programs which will not be blocked are accessibility software, Microsoft-signed code and IME software. For those who develop Windows software compatible with Chrome, Google advices you to switch Chrome channels and test your product.
