upcoming update - Google Chrome version 80

Hello all, 


I just heard that google is updating Chrome and is changing the way websites and cookies work by default.

I was just wondering if any one has tested this and come up with any problems. I understand there will be differences in every environment, but just wanted to get some information upfront on things to look at.

Hello  @CraigBrook ,


This is what i know, according to my research as far as Google Chrome and K2 are concerened


Google Chrome is phasing out support for NPAPI plugins, which includes Silverlight support please review K2 document: https://help.k2.com/news/silverlightsupport as reference


Once Chrome has removed NPAPI support completely, the only workaround will be to use another supported browser (including Firefox, Safari or Internet Explorer 9 or greater).


For more information on the browser versions supported, please see support support matrix - https://help.k2.com/smartforms/support-matrix-archive#DesignTimeBrowser



Hi CraigBrook


Please also see the following article.

Known Issue: Silverlight Disabled in Chrome 42, 43, and 44: https://help.k2.com/kb001887.

sorry but I don't understand this response, what does silverlight have to do with the upcoming update of google Chrome and the way they are handling the cookies?

I believe the changes you're describing are those discussed in this K2 KB article: https://help.k2.com/kb003468
