Where's our data, Google? Chrome 79 update 'a catastrophe' for Android devs with WebView apps

Temmokan

So

- Google Chrome doesn't create profile backup before any upgrade; if anything breaks, it's lost for good

- Google Chrome isn't in fact thoroughly tested within Google - the guinea pigs are randomly selected real-life users (a great cost saving)

- users, in their absolute majority, have no habit and/or knowledge of backing up their data

Welcome to brave new world.
