Google drops Microsoft's C ++


Now Chrome is almost identical to Windows, MacOS, Linux, and Android.

Back in 2013, Google announced plans to use the Clang Compiler for Chrome on Windows, MacOS, Linux, and Android. For the latter three, Clang has been used for a long time, but it is only now that the work of the Windows version of the browser has been finalized.

Now Chrome is almost identical to Windows, MacOS, Linux, and Android.

Back in 2013, Google announced plans to use the Clang Compiler for Chrome on Windows, MacOS, Linux, and Android. For the latter three, Clang has been used for a long time, but it is only now that the work of the Windows version of the browser has been finalized.

Drops C ++ in favor of open source options
Google has for a long time used the Visual C ++ compiler, which is the most widely used and supported for Windows, but has spent several years switching to Clang. By 2015, Chrome was compiled for the first time with Clang in Windows.

In Chrome 64 for Windows, the browser is compiled with Clang.

The reason for the change is quite simple. Instead of dealing with two different, Google can instead focus on one, for example, by getting the same errors on all platforms and thus troubleshooting and fixing faster.
