If alpha builds is your thing then you will be happy to know that Google has recently pushed Chrome 26 to its dev channel.
Although we expected just some minor changes and few bug fixes here and there, Google Chrome 26 actually includes quite a few improvements, in fact, it’s probably one of the biggest changelogs we have seen from the search giant.
