Hint for an easy way to keep google chromium updated with the latest build

Chromium Home page

First go to this url:

http://build.chromium.org/buildbot/snapshots/chromium-rel-xp/LATEST

You'll see a single number displayed, for example:

9223

Remember this number.

Click on the url below and replace the xxxx with the number from above:

http://build.chromium.org/buildbot/snapshots/chromium-rel-xp/xxxxx

Paste the url into your address bar, change the xxxxx to the number you saw on the "LATEST" page from step #1.

Open the web page using the completed url and you'll see a list of files. You want to download the file called:

mini_installer.exe

After the installer runs, you'll have the latest update of chromium installed.
