I've used this piece of software in the past without any troubles at all, but coming back to it today, I'm encountering a bit of a problem. Whenever I try to install or check for updates, I'm told that the "Connection could not be established." Otherwise, if going on past experience and the assumption that this is just little quick-fix problem, this program does its job :) !
Worked until one update failed to finish properly, Now I keep getting "Update package damaged" error no matter what I try. Also, even if it fails to update it deletes part of my existing Chromium installation. Very annoying.
Update 12/31/2013: I've used this for over 6 months now, and I'm completely satisfied! There's only two suggestions I have; 1) Allow multiple releases to be installed at the same time, mainly either snapshot or continuous builds alongside 64-bit builds. This would be handy for testing purposes as it'd save me the time of having to choose one or the other and manually update the second install. 2) Use absolute paths for running instances. Since Chromium is locked in its directory now, just detecting running Chromium instances would be beneficial for those who run Google Chrome at the same time and have to close Chrome to update Chromium.
Crupdater is the best! Thanks.
best chromium updater! Switch to x64 Builds (commondatastorage.googleapis.com/chromium-browser-continuous/index.html?path=Win_x64/) as option will be great next to a feature to restore place by/after update the pdf.dll (PDF Viewer Plugin) from Chromium so that this feature is include as well. For the program a suggestion add to the main menu a feature optimize sqlite databases in Chromium -> see speedyFox and CCleaner, BleachBit
