Google Chrome 1.4.0.835.18 beta

Post by Gloria E »

I use Chrome as a backup for IE9, so I would like to know if the beta version of Chrome will make useful changes and if it's safe to install?

I generally avoid beta versions and wait for the 'official' release.

Gloria,

It is nearly always a BAD idea to install beta versions of software. Unless you need to participate in the testing for some very good reason.

Beta versions of web browsers are important to people who write add-ons, as they need to test that their add-on will work when the final version ships, but the rest of us generally wait till the fully tested and supported version is ready to ship.

I'll wait for this one, just like I'm waiting for the other one (FF 6.0 beta 5). I too, tend to avoid anything in beta, although there a few programs I use that I would trust, beta or not. :thankyou:
