Google delays execution of doomed Chrome extensions

Not specific to Slimjet but may be relevant.

Google delays execution of doomed Chrome extensions
The Register
Google has delayed its browser extension platform transition for enterprise customers, giving those using managed versions of Chrome with the deprecated Manifest v2 (MV2) extensions an extra six months of support.

The Chocolate Factory has also redefined its deadlines for general Chrome users to make the transition to the new platform, called Manifest v3 (MV3), less of a shock to the system.

"Chrome will take a gradual and experimental approach to turning off Manifest V2 to ensure a smooth end-user experience during the phase-out process," explained David Li, a product manager at Google, in a blog post. "We would like to make sure developers have the information they need, with plenty of time to transition to the new manifest version and to roll out changes to their users."

...

However, Brave, Mozilla, and Vivaldi have said they intend to continue supporting Manifest v2 extensions for an indeterminate amount of time. How long that will last is anyone's guess.

And Slimjet?
