New In This Release
This release updates Google Chrome to the latest version. We've also changed the way we handle Google Chrome beta releases. Instead of GoogleChromeTest, they will be installed to GoogleChromeBeta to eliminate confusion. Existing installations, you can rename your GoogleChromeTest folder to GoogleChromeBeta and it should continue to work and update with the automatic updater (you may need to reinstall your theme, though). From now on, we will be releasing the same files pushed to all channels that local users would receive. So, if you are running the beta, you will also receive stable updates when Chrome is not in a current beta cycle, just as a local install with the beta channel selected would. Stable and Beta builds will continue to be announced on the frontpage. Dev builds will be posted to the Google Chrome Portable homepage but not announced via the homepage (as it updates about weekly). If you're using the current PortableApps.com Platform 2.0 Beta, you'll get automatic updates for all 3 as soon as they are released.
PortableApps.com Installer / PortableApps.com Format
Google Chrome Portable is packaged in a PortableApps.com Installer so it will automatically detect an existing PortableApps.com installation when your drive is plugged in. It supports upgrades by installing right over an existing copy, preserving all settings. And it's in PortableApps.com Format, so it automatically works with the PortableApps.com Suite including the Menu and Backup Utility.
