Microsoft and Google are preparing a port of Chrome for the ARM version of Windows 10

In the past year, Microsoft and Qualcomm presented a special version of Windows 10 for devices with ARM processors. Unlike the stillborn Windows RT, it supports running classic programs. The only problem is that they do not work always well. The same Google Chrome is inferior in speed to the native Microsoft Edge, but the developers want to fix it.

What is known?

In October, representatives of Qualcomm have confirmed the beginning of work on a port of Google Chrome for ARM. There have been suggestions that companies want to do it without the participation of Microsoft, but in reality it was exactly the opposite. Part of the new code on Chromium Gerrit added engineers the software giant:

Microsoft really benefit from native support for Google Chrome. This will help to solve the issue with apps on the Electron, which includes a library of rendering of Chromium and platform Node.js JavaScript-engine V8 from Google. The framework is used in the client Slack and the code editor of Microsoft Visual Studio Code.

Another example of cooperation between Google and Microsoft was the Campfire project to run Windows 10 on hrobuchak. But that’s another story.
When to wait?

If you believe Qualcomm, Google Chrome for ARM-based computers on Windows 10 will be released until the second half of 2019. By the time manufacturers will present the third generation of devices based on more powerful chip Snapdragon 8180.
