Alternatively you can download the latest release version of Chrome for Linux.
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 Beta channel is where ideas get tested (and sometimes fail). The Beta channel can be very unstable at times, and new features usually require some manual configuration to be enabled. Still, simply using Beta 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 team is excited to announce Chrome 86.0.4240.30 for Windows and Linux. It contains our usual under-the-hood performance and stability tweaks, but there are also some cool new features to explore - please head to the Chromium blog to learn more!
