    Before going into the details of the procedure on how to install google chrome, I think you might be interested in learning more about the various browser versions available.


    In fact, contrary to what one might think, there are different versions of the program, intended for different types of users.


    • Stable Chrome - this is the main version of the program, recommended for most users. It is probably this version of the browser that interests you, as it can be used without problems in many contexts and the developers test the features properly before releasing them in a stable way.
    • Chrome Beta - if you are a bit of a "geek" user, constantly looking for news and you can't wait to try the new features introduced in Chrome, you might be interested in using the Beta version of the browser. The developers are in fact used to test the features in the latter before releasing them in a stable way. Using the Beta version you will therefore always be "one step ahead" of the others, but keep in mind that it is a test, so you may encounter small problems while using Chrome. If you are a passionate user who knows this world well you will not have too many problems, but I do not recommend using the Beta version in the workplace, as you may encounter many "headaches". Read more here.
    • Chrome Dev - is a version of the browser intended specifically for developers. It is constantly updated and is designed to allow developers to carry out all the necessary tests. Chrome Dev, for this, is not entirely stable, but it does allow developers to access the various features in advance. I strongly advise against this version for everyday use. More details here.
    • Chrome Canary - it is a version that is generally used by developers or in any case by very passionate users, who know the world of browsers inside out and always want to stay up to date on the latest news. To be clear, Canary can be defined as a sort of alpha version of Google's browser, which contains what users will see in the future, or perhaps never see, in the most stable versions (precisely because they are experimental features). Between experimental functions and various tests, the browser may not work as it should at any moment. Chrome Canary winks only at those who know where to "put their hands" in case of problems: I absolutely advise against using this version in the workplace or even just for everyday use. It can be installed alongside the stable version of Chrome or the Beta. More details here.
