Chrome betas

Did you know there is 7 builds of chrome? there's stable(default), Beta(stable with some features), dev(mostly stable by 90%), canary, 60%, chromium stable 95%, chromium beta ?%, and chrome dev ?%   I use chromium stable and chrome dev as a lifeline.
Getting chrome- Go to the links
Canary can be run with another chrome build at the same time, but cannot be your default browser. This means if you click a link in Microsoft outlook it will not go there. I recommend working up to dev and getting canary if you don't like manual updates, If you don't care about manual updates, get chromium!

To get chromium, go to the link and scroll to the 2nd from the bottom. The bottom is "latest" and don't do anything. Open the highest version number and download "mini_install" and run it to install chromium. Bookmark the link so you can come back for updates. Updating chromium is essentially doing a second install.

Chromium builds-
Chromium is updated 5-15 times a day, Dev is once a week, beta once a month, and stable 4-8 times a year. Chromium can be set as default browser and run side by side with canary and chrome. It has a blue tinted icon, and canary has a gray and yellow one. Chromium doesn't come with current flash or shockwave. To fix this, click update plugin or get plugin, it will then bring you to adobe's site. Download this and some chrome extension, themes, and web apps if you link from and enjoy!
