Google Chrome Canary for Mac

Want to help test Chrome development releases and be on the absolute cutting edge of web browser development? Try out the newly released Google Chrome Canary for Mac OS X, which Google says is aimed at the “bravest” of Chrome users.

Chrome Canary installs as a separate app to the stable Chrome builds, so you don’t need to worry about overwriting your existing app or Chrome resources. Canary is then automatically updated to the latest build and offers no testing before each release, meaning you’ll have lots of interesting features and improvements alongside a slew of bugs and crashes, Google even says “we expect it to be unstable and, at times, unusable…” so be prepared to fill out crash reports.

If this sounds like fun to you, you can download Chrome Canary from and help out.

I like Chrome a lot but I’m partial to stable browser releases, nonetheless Canary is fun to play around with to see what’s cooking over at Google. Heads up to MacGasm for the tip.

    Works perfectly for me. Synced it with my gAccount and have been using it all day. I love running 2 different installs of Chrome and thats not possible on OS X without this release channel. :)

    LOL, I launch Canary and it immediately crashes. I guess unstable is an understatement.
