Google Chrome Release Cycle

By | January 14, 2011 | 7 Comments

Google has recently published an interesting release cycle slideshow for Google Chrome web browser that reveals some interesting points.

Here are some points that can be drawn from the presentation:

Google Chrome is treated as an online service rather than actual software, explaining the reason for such release cycles.

Instead of wasting time on feature branches (that can take weeks of debugging), Google Chrome team works on a centralized trunk, allowing to release more frequent updates.

The current release pattern is based on a six week release cycle.

Features are designed in a way to be disabled with a single patch (if required).
