I wish they had Google Canary for Linux. Right now, you can only pick a single channel for chrome (Stable, Beta, or Development). There really is no side by side chrome running. You can use chromium but it really is not the same thing (as it is usually a few versions behind chrome stable and lacks a few features).



There are also daily builds of Chromium for Linux: http://commondatastorage.googleapis.com/chromium-browser-con...

You can launch it without installation (just unzip the archive). I think there were daily builds of Chrome as well, but I can't recall the link.

I use this script to automatically update to the latest stable (test-green) Chromium build: https://gist.github.com/2049083

It actually just downloads and unpacks the latest version and keeps a backup of the previous release, but I found it quite handy. Be sure to adjust the path, though, if you want to use it.

switch out DOWNLOAD_URL = "http://commondatastorage.googleapis.com/chromium-browser-con...

with

DOWNLOAD_URL = "http://commondatastorage.googleapis.com/chromium-browser-con...
