Windows only: Tiny application Chromium Updater adds automatic updates and a download manager to the latest nightly version of the open-source Chromium browser.
If you are a fan of the Google Chrome browser, but prefer to use the underlying open-source Chromium browser instead, you can keep up with the nightly updates more easily with the Chromium Updater utility—just use the utility to download the latest version and install automatically. Readers should keep in mind that while the nightly builds give you the latest features first, they are more likely to break and have stability issues. We haven't yet tested this application here at Lifehacker HQ, so your mileage may vary—let us know in the comments if it works for you.
Chromium Updater is a free download for Windows only. For more, check out our power user's guide to Google Chrome.
