Download link to Chromium nightly updater 1.1.1: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?lnlr71eu9sl
You can always just download Chrome from Google here: http://build.chromium.org/buildbot/snap ... um-rel-xp/

Also, after a little wondering around I found this, which show some progress on the Linux/Mac versions of Chrome: http://build.chromium.org/buildbot/waterfall/index.html

Source: http://www.ghacks.net/2008/09/07/google ... ownloader/

Google is releasing nightly builds of Google Chrome like crazy, up to 10 releases per day is a lot and it is hard to keep up with the releases because the nightly builds come without automatic update functionality.

Donation Coder user Dirhael developed a simple application that checks for new nightly builds of Google Chrome and download them automatically for the user.

The nightly builds checker is a portable application that can be executed from any location. The tool provides two main buttons: The first button checks for the latest nightly build version of Google Chrome on the Google server and the download button downloads that version if the user decides to click the button. The latest version that has been downloaded using the application is listed in the application so that the user can compare the versions before downloading.

The build status is also listed in the application which provides information if the latest build did pass all unit tests. The nightly builds of Google Chrome can be run from the location that they have been unpacked into which means that no installation is required.

downloaded. thanks :)

I couldn't believe how many releases there'd been since launch! is it normally for there to be this many - and made available? I thought they'd just wait until the next beta was released and package them all up?

If there are seriously that many nightly builds being released, I wonder how much changes between each build.

It is generally no more than a few revisions each time, but it's impressive that they have the system to build so many times a day. Even Mozilla only build once a day.

I was reading about why they do this. Supposedly it helps them track down where things went wrong and fix them quicker, which doesn't really surprise me, the entire thing is automated. I believe what I read said that it also help them "punish" users who submit bad code. Lol.
