    Google Chrome Portable (Standalone EXE) 


    Portable Chrome : Google Chrome Portable at PortableApps.com

    Are you having problems updating your Chrome using the standard method? Do you want to update it to any available build (dev beta or release) on the fly? Download my Chrome Updater and simply place it in the same root directory (folder) as your Chrome.exe / ChromeLoader.exe and RUN IT!

    NOTE: You cannot have Chrome running while you update it.

    This works with the portable version of Chrome and should work on the standard installed version as well but is untested on the standard installed version. Feedback is welcome.

        Go ahead and send the screenshot or error message if you can. Are you using the Installed Chrome or the Portable Chrome? I had this happen once with the portable but it ended up being Chrome was corrupted so I replaced all Chrome files with a backup I had and it worked again.

        BTW, on the portable Chrome it is still working. I just updated mine.

        UPDATE : The latest Dev Build (as of Feb 12 2010) is pretty buggy, I would recommend the Beta Channel for now until the 5.0X Dev Build becomes more stable.

    Google Chrome Tip #1 – about:commands (stats for nerds) 

    As most Web Developers know by now, Google Chrome is THE browser to develop in. It had a bit of a rocky start (for instance the PNG transparency bug), but it really wasn’t too rocky compared to other browsers (IE8, still a total mess, is riddled with bugs & security issues). Usually anything Google touches eventually turns to Gold and Chrome is no exception to that rule. Fast, Smart, Efficient and just plain Cool. So what’s going on backstage in the Chrome browser? Much like 2 other great browsers (Firefox and Opera), Google Chrome is not at all afraid to let you see. So, if you’re an Uber Geek, Web Guru, Developer, or a just a Curious Monkey, you will want to eventually have a peek into some of those nerd stats. Just type these operator:commands into the browser address bar :

    This command will analyze the memory Chrome and each tab.

    Displays the name resolution, including performance.

    This displays the various performance measures browser.

    For now, Chrome does not have a formal mechanism for developers to graft extensions.But this mechanism will be in future versions ..Especially since the browser actually already supports extensions like Gears, DivX, Flash, Acrobat, Quicktime and ActiveX. Extensions revealed by this command.

    This command reveals much of the inner workings of the browser. It displays the current performance of different modules that make up Chrome and allows to study the performance of the browser more closely (or compare the differences in speed Chrome on two different machines).

    Very useful for Web developers and network administrators, this command will trace the network activity of a tab and display graphics performance to measure the load time of the various elements.

    This command specifies the version number and build number of Chrome.

    This command simulates a crash of the Web application and therefore the current tab. It can discover the error message displayed by Chrome when such incidents arise.

    It is the easter egg (Easter egg surprise Chrome).
