Could you create a popup that show that Google Chrome has been updated (appearing on the first start of the new Chrome)? Maybe you could add the change log as well.

Thanks.

I'm having to re-download Chrome manually everytime there's a new update. Mine won't self-update anymore. It still says .126 is the latest version available. :(
