I think this is a great discussion because we obviously have certain disagreements in terms of activities Google might take.
I can think of a few very valid use-cases why they should keep supporting old browser versions:
1. Some users use Windows XP, older versions of Chromebook, etc. that do not support newer (>88) versions of Chrome. As a developer, I would want to support these users in the future.
2. Company policies to use specific versions of Chrome due to various reasons that are based on their internal policies.
I am aware that new installations might be forbidden in the future, but it does not make sense to "stop working" existing users on MV2 extensions.
I hope we will get an official statement from Simeon or someone else that might have more information regarding this topic.
