The versioning of Chromium and thus Google Chrome has been criticized in the past for being raised with light speed. The first beta version of the Google Chrome web browser was released on September 2, 2008 and the web browser quickly made its way through versions 1 to 4. The official releases at this point are either a version 4 release (stable) or version 5 release (dev and beta).
This could change pretty soon as the latest Chromium version has been raised to version 6. It usually does not take long before the Google Chrome developers are raising the version of their web browser as well which means that we will soon see the first Google Chrome 6 releases appear.
Cutting edge users who want to try the latest Chromium 6 build can download the latest Chromium build from the Chromium build server.
There do not seem to be any major changes in the Chromium 6 builds yet.
What’s your opinion on this obviously accelerated versioning? Jumping to version 6 in less than two years would mean that Google Chrome would be the web browser with the highest version in two years time providing that Opera does not reach version 12 in that time. (via Caschy)
