Chrome Canary builds provide bleeding-edge updates alongside stable

Quote:
Windows only: If you're a Chrome fan and want to see the very latest in features and fixes, even if potentially unstable, you've now got a Canary Build. It's an auto-updating, near-nightly build that runs separately from your standard Chrome installation.

This is a pretty awesome idea for those that want to check out nightly builds, but still want to keep their stable version of Chrome.

Thanks Brian. I've installed this and it seems fine. I'm already running the dev build so I wonder if I'll see much difference.
Can't see a way to import bookmarks from the dev build or Opera.
Cheers, John

Yeah, I think it's a great idea, especially for people who run the stable or beta builds of Chrome. I run nightlies, so doesn't effect me much, but I hope it helps out others.

I'm running the canary build, which is now at 6.0.478.0, and it's displaying this forum erratically. Some of the site is half page.
Is anyone else getting this? Also there doesn't seem to be any bug reporting facility that I can find.

Cheers all, John

Hmmn. If it's only happening to me that's a bit worrying. This is what I mean:

We had discussion in VIP about this. The newest version of Canary has problems displaying some websites correctly, including this one. Remember Canary is by design, less stable than the regular Chrome and is going to have bugs from time to time.
