Here come the shouts of version jumping, ladies and gentlemen: Google has pushed the Chromium browser to version 6. If you're keeping tabs, the first publicly available version of Google Chrome arrived on September 1, 2008. About a year and a half later, they're 5 versions deep.
And hey, it's just a number — right? To you and me, yes.
To the general computing public, though, bigger still means better — and the average Joe just might be more receptive to a Chrome browser with a 6 after it than Firefox with a 3.
6 is twice is good as 3, right?
Builds stamped V6 are only available on the Chromium buildbot server right now — but you'll be seeing the change in the Dev Channel as soon as update scheduled for tomorrow. We'll have a look at the changelog once it's posted.
