Google Canary passes Chromium -- is Chrome development going the way of Android? (Download Squad)

Nov 7th 2010 10:35PM From what I known about the two browsers.

Canary, or Chrome SxS, is basically an offshoot of Chrome's 3 regular builds that are official release, beta, and dev.

Canary runs seperately from the other three chrome builds. Basically you can install it side by side and run it seperately, just as if running firefox and chrome at the same time.

Though Canary is kinda like a bleeding edge browser for chrome. somewhat like a suicide browser to see if a new feature works. see here for more information: http://www.downloadsquad.com/2010/07/23/google-chrome-canary-run-two-channels-at-once/

Now Chromium is the open source version of chrome. It is also a "bleeding edge" browser for chrome and tends to be quite unstable on some builds. You can think of Canary as the closed-source bleeding edge browser and Chromium as the open-source bleeding edge browser. I believe, but not certain, that Chromium runs standalone just like canary does in respect to the Google Chrome.

I don't know how often canary updates but chromium updates atleast 1 times per hour. Open-source people just contribute small code changes or additional features to the overall source and the source compiles and releases. basically that's how it works. You can see each Chromium update and update notes here: http://build.chromium.org/p/chromium/console

Hope that answers your question :P

Nov 7th 2010 4:56PM kk good to know ^^. I'm guessing that at the time of lee's post Chromium was in the process of updating to a new version. Just my guess but this happened before (Was monitoring chromium waterfall while using canary. canary was a higher build but chromium was trying to update to something new. had like 12 failed xp builds in a row. when a stable build finally got released, it was higher version number than canary)
