Google Plans to Replace Chrome in ChromeOS with Standalone Lacros Browser

  • Google is near completing its project to replace Chrome OS-based browser with a standalone Linux-based browser – Lacros.
  • The move aims to make browser patches and updates more efficient and potentially secure older machines by decoupling them from full system updates.
  • Lacros is expected to become mainstream with the next system update, Chrome OS 116, becoming the default browser on new Chromebooks out of the box.
