    Do NOT upgrade Chrome on your PC to the latest version:

    Version 86.0.4240.111 (Official Build) (64-bit)

    I have and so far, reCAPTCHA is broken on numerous web sites
    WhatsApp Web will not load and promptly tells me that I need to update Chrome.

    Okey Dokey
    I have been playing around with this and have found that by downgrading to this version:
    84.0.4147.135 (Official Build) (64-bit)

    Things that were broken now are not...
    However, it takes quite a bit of doing to downgrade Chrome without losing your browsing history, etc.
    It is possible.
    The easiest way is probably to turn on sync within Chrome.
    Another way is to download and install a Google Group Policy rule and activate some settings that will automatically downgrade/roll back your version of Chrome to whatever you want.

    I noticed this problem the other day at work using Chrome and reCAPTCHA was giving me problems.

    I don't know if this is the same version I'm using right now, but the web browser auto updated last time without me making this acceptable in settings.

    Looks like they have fixed it... The latest Chrome is still at Version 86.0.4240.111 (Official Build) (64-bit) and I have since reinstated it.

    Nice of them to actually acknowledge my report and let me know that they have fixed the problem... :o:argh:

    Yeah, I don't like the new Gmail logo.

    It looks out of place in my dark-themed browser.
