IRC Support FAQ

What's the latest version?

You can find out from https://omahaproxy.appspot.com/viewer, which displays the latest versions of each channel for each platform directly from the autoupdate service.

Where can I find old Chrome binaries?

Chrome binaries are only available through the installer (available from https://www.google.com/chrome) and the autoupdate system. There is no official source of Chrome binaries older than the current stable channel, because:
  1. There are frequently unpatched security bugs in older versions, since patches are only backported to current stable/beta/dev at the time of patching.
  2. The support burden of supporting older channels, which often have bugs that are fixed in later channels, is very heavy.
If you are a developer looking to build an old version to bisect a bug of check for a regression, please see the developers page.
