Google Chrome Canary Build: Updated more frequently

Google Chrome is the search giant’s entrant into the search market. It’s main claim to fame is that it is much faster than its competitors, and it provides a smooth and competent browser which is currently sitting in third place behind Internet Explorer and Chrome.

Ben Parr over on Mashable says that the people at Google do not feel that the weekly update of the Chrome Dev Channel is fast enough. The Chrome Dev Channel is where they test updates, new features and they can get feedback on what works and what does not. Now they are releasing a new version of the Chrome browser, the Canary build. This Canary build will be “more frequently updated than the Dev channel, with riskier changes and usually without a human being ever verifying that it works”

This new version of the browser will be unstable, more likely to break, implode and crash without warning. This is for advanced users who find regular beta testing boring. Most people should stay away from this version, and those who use it should have a backup ready just in case. For those interested in the untested beta browser, you can get it here.
