Test the latest developer release of Google's browser

This developer version of Google Chrome is a development release which allows those with programming knowledge to test and tweak features in Google's popular browser. Compared to the latest stable version this edition contains subtle modifications that make it worth trying for die-hard Chrome fans. As you expect from Google Chrome, you get a web browser with a sleek, minimalist design.

Strictly for developers and testing

Even compared with Safari and especially Firefox, the browser has very few buttons. All settings and options to choose your extensions are accessible via icons in the top right. Please note that this version of Google Chrome is strictly a developer release, so bear in mind that you may occasionally encounter bugs and the developers are very keen to hear feedback on such problems.

A testing ground for developers

The latest developer version of Google Chrome gives you a taste of what's to come from one of the fastest growing browsers out there.
