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.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
