    Default Google Chrome Updates

    I just noticed something, when i updated Chrome from 0.2.149.27 to 0.2.149.29 i now have 2 directories in:

    C: \ Documents and Settings \ <Name> \ Local Settings \ Application Data \ Google \ Chrome \ Application \
    These are both 43MB is file size, they are:

    /0.2.149.27/
    /0.2.149.29/

    It looks like every time we update Chrome it creates a new version directory, i hope they fix this because chrome is a new browser and there will be lots of updates so i think after a few months we will have GB's of data.

    Hi

    I think you can delete old directories, and just keep the recent one. If not, you can remove Installer folder from each /0.2.149.X/ folder. It can save some space.

    Yes i noticed this also, it's strange Google has structured it like this. As Miha said you can delete the older versions to clear room but for the average person who doesn't tinker with these things Chrome will quickly consume a lot of space.

    hehe, I suppose chrome-win32.zip is more convenient
    I have a short cut on my desktop pointing to the parent folder that [chrome-win32] is in.
    during each update, I just drag the [chrome-win32] folder from the archive right onto the short cut. The benefit is that you got a update progress indicator.(file copy progress)
    cheers!

    they probably do it so if they accidentally give out a massively bugged update you can delete and go back to you previous version.

    I'm used to newer versions of browsers being installed over older versions.
    It seems that this is not the case with Chrome. I have 154.0 and 154.3 (the latest version) directories.
    Am I completely safe in removing the 154.0 directory? Has everything in it ceased to function? (It actually contains one more file than the latest version.)

    Very rookie questions I know, but I always prefer to be cautious before trashing anything. :->

    The 154.9 version seems to have removed previous ones from my directory.

    So perhaps this problem has been solved.

    Can anyone confirm?
