Get an early peek at the next stable release of Chrome without putting your system too much at risk

The speed of browser development these days means you’re never more than a month or two from the next “major” release. But if you can’t wait that long, and you’re happy to sacrifice some stability and security in return for getting an early glance at new features, then this beta build of Google Chrome will satisfy most people.

While the beta version is still not stable enough to be considered a final release for the masses, it has at least undergone a measure of testing by those Chrome users adventurous enough to install the bleeding-edge alpha, or Dev, build, so crashes and glitches are fewer and far between.

It's important to realise that updating to the beta build will overwrite your existing stable installation of Chrome, so you can't run it side-by-side. But you will at least be automatically updated with the latest beta build, so as time goes on, Chrome becomes more stable before your current version migrates to a stable release and you jump to the next beta build.

You can always jump back to the stable build by visiting the Release Channel page, but note you'll only properly switch when a stable release newer than your beta build is released. If this is an issue, simply uninstall the beta and reinstall the stable version instead.

Chrome 62 is now in the Beta channel. What's new in Chrome 62?

- Under-the-hood performance and stability tweaks

Verdict:

Move up to the Beta channel, test some early bleeding-edge improvements, without affecting your system, unlike the Dev channel.

Google Chrome latest Beta .44 is more stable with Flash Player

Posted by: Kafshiel, 14 June 2013 13:52

The latest Beta for Google Chrome deals with a performance problem of the latest Shockwave Pepper Flash, although Google doesn't refer that in their blog. The previous version of Pepper Flash plug-in was .225 and now it's back to .203 which fixes some issues. If you're on the Beta Channel your Chrome is already updated when you've booted up.

hmmm

final , or beta what now

Hi Neman, currently the beta and stable Chrome have the same version number. The difference is the channel. One is the stable channel, one is beta. Chrome 21 will move in to beta, soon.

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update build 1709

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows - Fall Creators Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10? The latest release brings back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1607 which is the August 2016 Anniversary Update.
