The first version of Chrome that will feature revamped Extensions API functions is expected to be ready for public testing as a Chrome Canary version "at the end of July or beginning of August," according to Simeon Vincent, an Extensions Developer Advocate for the Chromium Project.
However, please note that this version is intended as a "Developer Preview." Some ad blockers will not work because they are still running on top of deprecated Chrome code.
This version is intended as a test base for developers so they can prepare their extensions for the upcoming changes in the Chrome extensions code, which currently is scheduled to arrive in the main Chrome stable release at the start of 2020, barring any problems.
Extension developers will have around six months to migrate from the old Chrome extensions codebase to the new ones.

People, please don't freak out. Nothing major has happened yet. Actually this is good way for MS to get feedback for ChromEdge so I see it as a positive. We will need to remain patient until MS makes a final verdict on this issue and how it affects Edge. ATM I trust MS much more than G.
