Download notes: * Alternatively you can download the latest non-beta version of this software.

How to get the new version?

  1. If you don't have Google Chrome, install it from google.com/chrome
  2. Subscribe to the developer preview channel. This is required even if you've previously subscribed to the channel.
  3. 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.

What's New:

The beta channel has been updated to 39.0.2171.36 for Windows, Mac and Linux.

With this release Chrome Mac is 32-bit and will continue to be 32-bit when Chrome 38 goes to stable. With the release of Chrome 39, we will be moving Mac to 64-bit and will no longer support 32-bit NPAPI plugins.
