I would like to be able to tell when the last time my version of Google Chrome updated. I would also like to be able to tell what version I had before my last update.

Ideally a log of every update my version of Chrome has made with dates and versions would be the best.

I am trying to troubleshoot a bug that just got introduced in Chrome and I think it is related to a chrome update.

You didn't mention what operating system. – Brian Apr 4 '12 at 16:53

In OS X, navigate to /Applications, then right-click Google, and click Show Package Contents. Go to Contents/Versions, and look for your current and previous version numbers there:

If you're using Windows 7 or Vista (maybe XP, but don't have it handy to test) Chrome actually installs to AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application which will contain the previous version and the current version along with sub-directories named after the version number.

The directory names and date information hold the information you asked for.

Update: Chrome often installs under Program Files now so the new location to check would be: C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application

This is exactly what I am looking for, however I forgot to mention I am on a Mac (Lion). – JD Isaacks Apr 4 '12 at 17:16
