I always test the latest chromium nightlies. You get the latest goodies and it is stable most of the time.
On Mac, I use the really neat and simply applescript by Dominic Barnes. Recently, Chromium nightly locations changed. So, here is the updated script.
--Developed by Dominic Barnes
--find latest build number
--set the_source to do shell script "curl http://build.chromium.org/buildbot/snapshots/chromium-rel-mac/LATEST"
set the_source to do shell script "curl http://build.chromium.org/f/chromium/snapshots/chromium-rel-mac/LATEST"
--set local directory info
set remFile to "chrome-mac.zip"
set locDir to "~/"
set locFile to "chrome-mac.zip"
--download latest build using build number in the_source
--do shell script "curl http://build.chromium.org/buildbot/snapshots/chromium-rel-mac/" & the_source & "/" & remFile & " -o " & locDir & locFile
do shell script "curl http://build.chromium.org/f/chromium/snapshots/chromium-rel-mac/" & the_source & "/" & remFile & " -o " & locDir & locFile
--unpack and copy
do shell script "unzip -o " & locDir & locFile & " -d " & locDir
--move existing Chromium and copy new
do shell script "cp -pR /Applications/Chromium.app /Applications/Chromium.old.app"
do shell script "rm -R /Applications/Chromium.app"
do shell script "mkdir -p /Applications/Chromium.app"
do shell script "mkdir -p /Applications/Chromium.app/Contents"
do shell script "cp -pR " & locDir & "chrome-mac/Chromium.app/Contents /Applications/Chromium.app"
--Cleanup folders and files
do shell script "rm -R " & locDir & "chrome*"
do shell script "rm -R /Applications/Chromium.old.app"
display dialog "Chromium build " & the_source & " has been installed"
Garrison Keillor’s Writer Almanac makes my morning. Today’s one talks about poor early risers, louis armstrong, scat singing, poet shelley, beatles. Here is a gem: When asked to define jazz, Pops said: “Man, if you have to ask what it is, you’ll never know.”
The Gervais Principle is this:
Sociopaths, in their own best interests, knowingly promote over-performing losers into middle-management, groom under-performing losers into sociopaths, and leave the average bare-minimum-effort losers to fend for themselves.

“Non sequitur is Latin for “it does not follow.” It is most often used to indicate something which does not follow logically, such as a stated conclusion that is not supported by the facts.”From Wikipedia
