Tesla is solving some complaints about its in-car browser as it will be upgraded to Chromium, Google’s open-source browser project, confirmed Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Twitter.
About to be upgraded to Chromium

This doesn’t mean that Tesla’s in-car browser will be powered by Chrome or any other browser in particular.
Rather, it should theoretically improve its browser by making it at least more consistent to use.
Musk did not confirm a release date or a slow-rollout like what Tesla is doing with its ‘Enhanced Summon’ and updated ‘Autopilot.’
Tesla also announced on March 25th that it’s increasing the price of the Model Y SUV crossover by up to $2000 CAD.
