This week we announced the release of Chrome 2.0.172.37 on the Beta channel and the release of Chrome 3.0.195.1 on the dev channel, with auto-update for extensions. If until now the Beta channel what the sole domain of Chrome 2.0 and the dev channel the domain of Chrome 3.0, with this release, things have changed – Chrome 3.0 has made it to the Beta channel. I can only say that I'm pretty excited about the possibility of seeing a stable Chrome 3.0 version in the future (hopefully near future).

Program Manager with Google Chrome , Anthony Laforge, explains: “Google Chrome 3.0.193.2 has been released to the Beta channel. You can install the current Beta channel release from [here].” According to Laforge, Chrome 3.0.193.2 Beta comes with some principal and minor changes compared to Chrome 2.0.172.37.
