    Chrome 56.0.2924.87

    Offline Installers
    Consumer version
    x64

    Enterprise version (msi installers)
    x64
    dl.google.com/dl/chrome/install/googlechromestandaloneenterprise64.msi
    x86
    dl.google.com/dl/chrome/install/googlechromestandaloneenterprise.msi

    Differences between Consumer and Enterprise versions
    1. Enterprise lands in Program Files (x86) even though x64 is used, while Consumer in AppData.
    2. In a multi-user scenario, msi installs Chrome for all users by default.

    Here are a couple other features you should be aware of:
    1. If a user already had the Consumer version installed and you push out the Enterprise edition to their machine, the next time they launch the Consumer edition it will detect that the Enterprise edition is installed. After displaying an explanatory message to the user, the Consumer edition uninstalls itself, the user's Chrome shortcuts are updated and the Enterprise edition is launched.
    2. The user's personal settings from the Consumer edition will be picked up by the Enterprise edition, as long as the version number of the Enterprise edition is greater or equal to the Consumer edition.

    Therefore, I recommend to install Enterprise on a clean fresh system.
    Also I recommend Enterprise version for those who are using programs like AppGuard or ReHIPS which block running programs from AppData folder.

    Kind of off topic, but there use to be an old "tweak" per say under the chrome://flags menu,chrome://flags/#max-tiles-for-interest-area, which is sill in most people's current tweaking guide for chrome. That being said, I cannot seem to find it within the flags menu and I wasn't' sure it it had been removed or renamed by chance, or perhaps chrome just made the changes standard? Like I said, most current websites that claim to increase chrome's performance have it listed, but yet it is not there so I just wanted to see if I was alone on this or if those sites are no checking to see which features have been removed over the past few releases.

    Flags don't stay there all the time, Flags may be changed or removed at any time.
    With each version i see always new flags, but a few are also removed.

    Yeah, I figured it was removed, but I always find it funny when a blog simply copy and pastes their old methods for tweaking without checking to see which features may or may not still apply.

    You can't install Google Chrome x86 and x64 to respective folders. You can install and run only one browser.

    No such limitation with Chromium from Sourceforge, which lets you install both browsers to respective folders.

    Chrome 57 coming very soon.

    Stable/M57 issue tracker: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/list?can=2&q=releaseblock=Stable m=57&colspec=ID Pri M Stars ReleaseBlock Component Status Owner Summary OS Modified

    YouTube Chrome Dev video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=57Scec2XPd0

    First, the issue tracker gets down to 1 or 2 remaining issues blocking stable release. Next, the Chrome Developers YouTube channel releases the "features" video. Then comes release. Let's see if this comes within the next 24 hours. The last few major release versions have come about a week prior to the approximate release schedule.
