Google Chrome becoming the killer of web browsers available at the moment. Would you like to try out different versions of Chrome and newer cool features potentially would be available for the future stable versions? In my opinion Google Chrome/Chromium is that fastest browser available. You will tell me I’m wrong but that’s just my opinion.
Chrome seems to release new updates quite often so you want to keep up to date with all that newer features. If you subscribe to a one of Beta, Dev, stable channels it will update by itself without even prompting so you would not have to worry about keeping it up to date, unlike Chromium. But you can update Chromium by using a updater or you will have to download it and install the newest build manually.
Ok, don’t get confused with all these different kind of versions. Chromium is the open source project Google chrome is based on. Chromium releases few new versions with new cutting edge features everyday. Then every now and then Google makes a new Goole Chrome dev version using latest Chromium build and they adds some more new features on top of it. Then every week or so they takes the latest Google Chrome dev build and releases the Google Chrome beta by sorting out faults. Finally in every few months they release the stable version of Google Chrome when they the developers are satisfied with the new features and feel safe to release it.
