Selenium ChromeDriver used to work

I used to use this code:

from selenium import webdriver
desktop_browser_list = [webdriver.Chrome("./drivers/chromedriver")]

But then Chrome apparently got fancier and doesn’t work with the old chromedriver. So I downloaded the new version, but it threw various errors.
So, now I have to switch to

from selenium import webdriver
options = webdriver.ChromeOptions()
options.binary_location = "/Applications/Google Chrome"
desktop_browser_list = [webdriver.Chrome(executable_path="./drivers/chromedriver", chrome_options=options)]
