The browser in Tesla cars will receive an update and will switch to the Chromium base on which Google Chrome also works. The current browser does not work too fast and according to older research it is not used much.

As is often the case with news about Tesla, it comes from CEO Elon Musk himself, but the text is limited to a single tweet . A Tesla owner complained about the browser, to which Musk replied “is about to get an upgrade to Chromium.” That means it won’t be a long wait, but Musk doesn’t give a date. According to Electrek, the browser is not only slow, but also has problems rendering web pages. The site describes the software as “barely usable”.

The plans to essentially replace the browser have been around for some time. In 2013 , Musk already stated that the browser might be replaced by Chrome. That plan has changed slightly in the meantime.

The Chromium codebase is popular for browsers. Not only Chrome is based on it, but also Opera, Vivaldi and Brave. Edge , the browser that Microsoft introduced with Windows 10, will also move from its own code base to Chromium in the future. According to Mozilla’s CEO, the popularity of Chromium is far from ideal .
