Notes[edit]

  • Release date is the date of first release. All channels have subsequent updates which are not shown. For release update history see Google Chrome Releases.
  • The first stable release in Windows, macOS and Linux was Google Chrome 5.0.375. The first stable release on Android was Chrome 18.0.1025123 (Chrome for Android).[r 164][r 165][r 166]
  • Old development and beta builds are not shown after they become stable releases.
  • As of Chrome 26, Linux installations of the browser may be updated only on systems that support GCC v4.6 and GTK v2.24 or later. Thus systems such as Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 LTS, Debian 6's 2.20, and RHEL 6's 2.18 are now among those marked as deprecated.[r 167]
  • As of Chrome 59, Linux Chrome defaults to GTK+3. Older versions of Linux, e.g. RHEL 6 or CentOS 6, with only GTK+2 support, are not able to run this version of Chrome. Red Hat's GTK+2 build of Firefox ESR is probably the last remaining regularly updated browser on RHEL 6/CentOS 6.[4]
  • Versions 6–32 had Google Chrome Frame counterparts, until its development was discontinued.[r 168][not in citation given]
  • As of version 50, macOS 10.6, 10.7, 10.8, Windows XP and Vista are no longer supported.
  • Standalone builds can be found on Google's Chromium Browser Continuous build server.
