Google Canary Now Available For The Mac

Posted May 3, 2011

Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) has released the Canary version of the Chrome browser for Mac OS X. Canary is a pre-Dev build of the Chrome browser. This means that it is intended for those who do not mind previewing new software that may have a good amount of bugs.

“Because we expect it to be unstable and, at times, unusable, you can run it concurrently with a Dev, Beta, or Stable version of Google Chrome. Your Canary data remains separate, but if you set up Sync in each version of Chrome that you use, you can automatically continue using the same set of bookmarks, extensions, themes, and more,” said Google on the Chromium blog.

Google tried out the Canary concept on Windows last year. And literally hundreds of thousands of Windows users helped Google make Chrome better.
