    I’m sure I’m using Chrome Beta 9(i.e 9.0.597.10).
    You mean to say if I’m using Beta, it will not automatically gets updated to stable version when released?

    What if I am using Beta 9, Do I need to install it then?
    One thing I don’t like about them is they never mention which version they have made available to download be it stable version or beta… If you need to install any specific version, it becomes quite difficult to find out which version is currently up for download

      Are you sure? you are using Chrome Beta 9. Because Chrome 9 Beta release still ahead and may be introduce by the end of this year. Besides I want to clear one more thing… If you are using beta build, Google will automatically push beta update. You need to download to get stable release.
