Download notes: * Alternatively you can download the latest non-beta version of this software.
How to get the new version?
- If you don't have Google Chrome, install it from google.com/chrome
- Subscribe to the developer preview channel. This is required even if you've previously subscribed to the channel.
- Wait until the new version is downloaded (you may force the updatie by opening the "About Google Chrome" dialog).
"The Dev channel is where ideas get tested (and sometimes fail). The Dev channel can be very unstable at times, and new features usually require some manual configuration to be enabled. Still, simply using Dev channel releases is an easy (practically zero-effort) way for anyone to help improve Google Chrome."
If you don't like the new version, you can always downgrade to the most recent stable version by reinstalling Chrome.
The Chrome engineering team is excited to announce the promotion of Chrome 42 to the beta channel for Windows, Mac and Linux. Chrome 42.0.2311.50 contains many improvements including:
- A number of new apps/extension APIs (including the Push API!)
- Lots of under the hood changes for stability and performance
- The answer to life, the universe, and everything
