Permits install and update of all Chrome channels side by side
#!/bin/bash
# Multichrome Version 0.7.1
# This script will find the latest Unstable, Beta or Stable Google
# Chrome package, download it and repackage it into a generic tar
# format. It allows for multiple versions to be installed side by side.
# I don't use Chrome for regular browsing but it is handy for
# comparative tests against Opera. :P
