Fifth Chrome 66 Build Comes to the Chrome OS Dev Channel

The fifth and likely the last Chrome 66 build for the Chrome OS Dev Channel has arrived.  The new build is version 66.0.3359.31 (Platform version: 10452.11.0) and contains a number of bug fixes and other stability improvements as the Chromium team prepares to move it up to the Beta Channel.

With the release of this build, the Chromium team has released a Dev build for the last five consecutive weeks and based on past history, there is very rarely a sixth update in this channel.

As always, those who have devices in the Dev Channel can type chrome://help in the omnibar of the browser to force their devices to download the update.  As a gentle reminder, the Dev Channel is not recommended to be run on production Chromebooks as it is unstable and you will likely run into bugs or issues.

We still have a bit of a wait before we see Chrome OS running Chrome 66 in the Stable Channel.  The build is not slated for release until April 24th according to the Chromium team and we still have Chrome 65 ahead of it.  Chrome 65, which is in the Beta channel, is slated for release this month on March 13th.  That Chrome 65 release is now two days late so hopefully we will see it released by the end of this week.
