Update to this Chrome version
Will the PET for Chrome "auto-update"? Is there a newer PET available?

I am not sure if the auto-update works with Google Chrome (the browser itself or the Pepper Flash Player which is supposed to auto-update as well I believe).
I was tinkering with Google Chrome 30 a couple of weeks ago. You are welcome to give it a try. I believe that (unlike Chromium) some stuff is hard-coded so the main folder has to be installed in /opt which it is.
The Pepper Flash Player is a large file which is really surplus to requirements if we have our own. If it gives you any trouble, go into the settings and disable it and use only the normal one in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins (you will see that two flash players are detected).
This will only work in very recent Puppies such as Precise and possibly Upup Raring (needs glibc 2.15 or later). OK in Slacko (14.0) too but needs libgconf2 from my Chromium thread or you can use PPM.
