Google is switching things up with Chrome/Chrome OS releases

  Google has something brewing this year for sure. I'm merely speculating but this announcement today may seem insignificant now however could be more meaningful later this year. For Chrome, Google is moving away from a six-week update cycle to a four-week update cycle. This means features will be released quicker along with Google maintaining its 2-week releases for fixes and patches.  As for Chrome OS, Google is a bit vaguer and more news will be shared later this year. For now, all we know is that Chrome OS will receive multiple stable releases but nothing more specific was mentioned. Again we should learn more later this year but it sounds to me that Chrome OS will be on a different release cycle than Chrome. More feature releases? One could hope. Alex Mineer from Google says: For more than a decade, Chrome has shipped a new milestone every 6 weeks, delivering security, stability, speed and simplicity to our users and the web.
