The great features of Google Chrome have led it to become one of the best browsers in the world and the favorite for developers to create their own version through the open-source Chromium. In fact, dozens of forks that we can download for both Windows, Android or iPhone are based on the latter.
The future Chrome updates can be found in Canary
Apart from the stable release and Chromium, Google has a channel called Canary that implements the browser's experimental updates that haven't been tested enough yet. This version of the browser is called Chrome Canary and we can install it on both smartphones and tablets.
Since it's experimental, it may have stability issues.
Therefore, you'll be able to try out all the updates that Google intends to bring to its browser, but that doesn't mean that they'll all be finally implemented. However, some developers may find them interesting.
Canary vs Chrome. What are the differences?
- It's experimental: it's unstable, therefore don't be surprised if Canary shuts down all of a sudden or shows an error message; it hasn't been tested.
- It receives loads of regular updates: it can be upgraded 7 days a week and consume up to 100 MB of bandwidth.
- You can collaborate with the developer community: take part in the program providing your experience with the browser.
How to install the Canary version of Chrome?
You can download this standalone version without having the stable browser installed, so you can carry out as many tests as you consider appropriate. Therefore, if you're interested in knowing what the company has in store for its web browser don't hesitate to get hold of its APK.
