Evergreen Googlebot

It took just under 20 days from the official public release of Chrome version 76 for GoogleBot to support it but as of yesterday, August 18th, 2019 at around 3pm ET, GoogleBot now supports Chrome 76 features. Yes the evergreen GoogleBot is now evergreen again, we knew it was coming soon and it happened.

This means that all the Chrome 76 features, such as native lazy loading and much more are supported by Google's crawler, GoogleBot.

Valentin Pletzer notified me of this on Twitter, he built a tool to track the state of GoogleBot:

Chrome 77 is next, it will be released to the public on September, 30 2019 - so we will see how long GoogleBot takes to support it.

I assume the testing tools also support 76 but it would be something I have to set up a testing page to see for sure.
