For chrome at least versions and updating are going to become invisible. Google has indicated that they are going to do all the updating invisibly in the background and once that is working they'll remove the version number too. They'll push the security fixes (and just whatever they think enhances your browsing experience) directly to your computer. -- Thomas Kahle http://dev.gentoo.org/~tomka/
