    That looks promising though it's Chrome and not Chromium. This could have changed but it used to be the case that Chrome sent a lot of information back to Google but Chromium did not. I've noticed that there's a "Automatically send usage statistics and crash reports to Google" checkbox in Chrome settings now, though, so maybe this has changed.
    Also, Chrome is based on Chromium, not the other way around. So, if you want the most bleeding-edge, they would be in the Chromium Nightly builds, not the Chrome..

    Chromium is Google's testing browser. Open source testing and closed source release. That way they can depend on the community to come out with new features, and then use the code for the next Chrome release.
