Overview

Google Chrome Canary is a program developed by Google Inc. The most used version is 49.0.2623.0, with over 22% of all installations currently using this version. Upon installation, it defines an auto-start registry entry which allows the program run on each boot for the user which installed it. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The main program executable is chrome.exe. The software installer includes 19 files and is usually about 353.97 MB (371,164,394 bytes). In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 7 (SP1) as well as Windows 8. While about 47% of users of Google Chrome Canary come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and Brazil.
