Data-Munching Bug Throws Chrome 79 Android Rollout Into Chaos

Google has stalled the rollout of its Chrome 79 Web browser for Android devices until it can find a way to neutralize a data-destroying bug. Affected users have been vilifying Google and app developers for failing to head off the problem. The latest Chrome version contains two highly anticipated new features: phishing protection, and the ability to reorder bookmarks. Google started rolling out Chrome 79 last Wednesday. App developers and users began reporting a problem with missing data in some of their Android apps by Friday morning.
