Google Chrome 18.0.1010.1 BetaGoogle - 24.69MB (Open Source) - Dev Chanel
Think of the Dev channel of Google Chrome as an alpha build, Chrome’s equivalent of Firefox Aurora. It’s one step forward from the untested nightly builds of Chrome Canary, but it’s still a long way from the finished article, never mind the more reliable beta.
That said, Chrome Dev obviously remains a key part of the Chrome development cycle, as it’s the first release specifically designed for wider public consumption. Unlike Canary, you can’t run Google Chrome Dev side-by-side with the stable, final version, although you could fashion your own clumsy workaround by running Chrome Dev alongside the portable version of Chrome.
If you do go down the Dev path, be prepared to enjoy a much less stable experience, although in return you’ll be testing cutting-edge features that won’t be available to other users for weeks if not months.
What's new in Chrome 18? Very little apart from some bug fixes. Chrome 18 is now based on the Chromium v8 core (126.96.36.199), fixes full-screen issues under Windows, adds support for Native Client under Linux, startup issues on Red Hat Enterprise 6 and more.
Chrome 18 dev build 1010.1 adds improvements to the PDF plugin, including support for ‘Rotate Clockwise’ and ‘Rotate Counterclockwise’ commands to context menus, so users can more easily view documents scanned horizontally.
If you're a Linux user interested in Native Client support, or an experienced user, then try the latest Chrome dev build.
