Would You Try The Google Chrome Canary Build?

by Ferman Aziz

Google recently announced that it’ll now be updating its Chrome browser every 6 weeks. Google’s Chrome Dev Channel is a part of its open-source Chromium Project where the company constantly tests new features and experimental builds of Chrome. This obviously means that the Dev version of the browser sees a lot of new updates and developments which need to be tested and it becomes hard to gather feedback on all of them in time.

Google has found a way around the problem. It has released the ultimate experimental version of the world’s third most popular browser which installs and runs side by side with other Google Chrome installations. Google explained on its official blog that it is aimed at those users “who want to help test Google Chrome and are comfortable using a highly unstable browser that will often break entirely.” The Canary Build will be updated more frequently than the Dev channel “and usually without a human being ever verifying that it works.”

Currently available for Windows XP, Vista and 7 only, the Canary Build can not be set as your default browser which is actually a blessing in disguise as it is obviously expected to crash and break often. Install and use if you wish to be a part of the development of the world’s fastest browser and like to “live on the bleeding edge” as Google puts it.
