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 68 is now in the Beta channel. What's new in Chrome 67?

- 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.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.51

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.18.51

• When you receive a link to an Instagram or Facebook video, you can now play it right within WhatsApp. With picture-in-picture, you can also keep watching the video while you navigate to another chat.
• If you're a group admin, you can now remove admin rights from other participants. Select the admin in "Group Info" and tap "Dismiss As Admin."
• Group admins can now choose who can change a group's subject, icon and description by going to "Group Info" and tapping "Group Settings."
