chromium builds

mockgeek's picture

it took me a while to find these links, but i've been downloading the latest builds of chromium and running them. they are rather stable but do have some quirks about them. i wouldn't switch to this as your default browser just yet.

here is the link to the build page:
http://build.chromium.org/buildbot/snapshots/chromium-rel-linux/

i actually scripted a process to read the LATEST file in that directory which contains the version/build number of the latest and then download it.

do note that these builds come sometimes 5 or 6 a day.
