The last version of Chrome for Windows 7 was 109.  We have some customers who are still on Windows 7.  Since a lot of MV3 bugs have been fixed since 109, I am likely going to recommend that these customers switch to an MV2 version of the extension.

Will they need to use the ExtensionManifestV2Availabilty switch to continue using V2 extensions?  

I would assume not, I'm just double-checking that there isn't already code in version 109 to disable extensions that might be turned on by some switch on the update server.

Thanks!

The ExtensionManifestV2Availability policy doesn't even exist in Chrome 109.

Hi Don,

We won't be disabling any extensions in versions of Chrome earlier than Chrome 127.

Warnings go back slightly earlier, but only to Chrome 126.

As hrg mentioned, you should be good :)
