Why does it continue to say "Up to date" if there is an update available?

chrome://help shows:

Version 27.0.1453.6 dev
Platform 3912.4.0 (Official Build) dev-channel daisy
Firmware Google_Snow.2695.117.0

...but this post says dev is at 27.0.1453.46

Why is there not a FORCE UPDATE option?

Because 27.0.1453.6 is a greater number than 27.0.1453.46
.6 is newer than .4

Nice new release. Sometimes still a bit slow on the Series 3.

Anyway an epic fail of chromeos is its inability to do the basic things the right way - meaning: Beeing able to simply use *any* IMAP, POP or Exchange mail account while having frequent checks for new mails or even push.

I know it's from a concepts perspective a bit hard - but on the other hand even the cheapest Android will outperform Chromeos with respect to the basic tasks.

This should and this must change if google wants broad success with this fantastic OS.

Does anyone know what happened to the overscroll history navigation flag? That was one I used more than any of the others.
