Change Log:

Version 2.9: Re-wrote the remote host part system (this is necessary since a considerable part of the extension is in PHP) introduced a fall-back mechanism in case a host fails which allows me to redirect without any downloading requirement by the users. I sincerely apologize for the huge mistake I made in choosing the last free PHP web hosting service which ended up flopping. I know I took some time to fix this properly but I was busy with another project. 

As for new features BIG NEWS!! I made available both the Continuous & the Snapshot builds for you to choose together with the latest version of each indicated on the extension, this applies to any OS you are on which is still automatically detected. While for most I still recommend the The Continuous branch build, it is now up to the users which build they'll prefer using, now that this option is available so is the responsibility, in short the choice is upon your own risk!

NOTE: I welcome any offers of free/ad-supported reliable PHP web hosting.

Version 2.8: An add-on major re-write due to chromium hosting changes, I had to come up with a new approach which should give us a few more advantages. 

Not so bad news: I'm still testing this version so you might expect minuscule hiccups (despite me testing this thoroughly).

Good news: You won't have to update every time a change happens from now on, part of the plugin is hosted remotely. Which brings me to the Notifications Section - that is, if a change requires us to update the whole add-on then you will be notified accordingly on the add-on itself.

I might also consider using this as an advert space.. I'll keep myself humble, do I at this deserve to ask for donations of sorts?) Anyways matters little, I thank you for your ongoing support. :)

Version 2.7: Icon changed due to the Google branding policy. Updated description.

Version 2.6: Updating paths as necessary with the buildbot.

Version 2.5: Fixed the In-Depth Information tab & increased the download tab timer to 2.5 seconds.

Version 2.4: Added a 64-bit Zip Folder download button for Linux users.

Version 2.3: Minor manifest tweak.

Version 2.2: Tweaked Download popup timeout.

Version 2.0: Fixed any remaining downloading issues.

Version 1.9: Minor visual tweaks, now download confirmation dialogs open in a popup  window instead of a tab, I need feedback to see if you prefer it this way or as it was with a new tab, it's either one way or the other as download confirmation is part of the browser system, one with which I agree.

Version 1.8: Added a tab which shows some very detailed information about the builds, like this one can appreciate better the hard work some good people are putting into the Chromium Browser while keeping better track of the builds, their changelog & much much more.

Version 1.6: Implemented automated OS detection which now permits the updating of the Chromium browser depending on which Operating system is installed i.e Windows/Mac/Linux.

Version 1.2: Now there is option to download both the latest Executable installer & the Zip Folder for the Windows version (such option isn't available for the Mac/Linux Operating systems).
