Switching between dev and beta Chrome channels on Linux


If you’re on Linux (say Ubuntu 10.04, also known as Lucid Lynx), you can switch between the developer (dev) and beta channels of Chrome like this:

Switch from Beta to Dev:
sudo apt-get install google-chrome-unstable


Switch from Dev to Beta:
sudo apt-get install google-chrome-beta


Also, if you want to check whether a new dev version of Chrome is out, you can just repeat the same command:
sudo apt-get install google-chrome-unstable


and if there’s no new version, you’ll get something like this back:

Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
google-chrome-unstable is already the newest version.
