Update Available on the Dev Channel: Chrome

The month of July comes to an end with good news for the dev community and Google Chrome hardcore fans: the Mountain View-based company has rolled out an update for the Chrome 3.0 browser on the dev channel. The update in question carries the official tag of Chrome and is meant to make the web browser a more stable platform.

According to Program Manager with Google Chrome, Anthony Laforge, the one who announced the release – and in fact the one who always announces new Chrome releases, on all channels (stable, Beta and dev channel) – Chrome “contains crash and stability fixes as well as patches for our brand new tab page, themes, the video tag.” A detailed list of changes is available in the log of all revisions.


If you are already on the dev channel, then you should have no problem updating to this latest version of the Chrome web browser. If you are not, then you can join now and have early access to Chrome releases. BE warned though that the developer channel, as the name so adequately points out, is not for the regular user ; it is meant, drum rolls please, for the developer.

“[The] developer preview channel is where ideas get tested (and sometimes fail). The Dev channel can be very unstable at times, and new features usually require some manual configuration to be enabled. Still, simply using Dev channel releases is an easy (practically zero-effort) way for anyone to help improve Google Chrome. If you're writing extensions, you need to use the Windows Dev channel,” explained Google.

A detailed guide on how to get on the Dev channel, in case this interests you, is available here.

After you get Chrome and put it through its paces, Google would like you to report any bug that you come across. You can file a bug here.

UPDATE: Chrome for Windows has been released on the dev channel as well.
