As a website tester I always need to know which version of a browser a machine is running, so that I can provide accurate results of a test, on a particular machine and browser.
Google Chrome allows you to do this by using the About Google Chrome option from the menu or by using Google Chrome URLs – in paricular chrome://version
This then displays the current version of the browser you’re running, plus info on other installed items. It will sometimes also prompt Chrome to check if it needs to update itself, which if it does, it will then do.
There are also some other Google Chrome URLs, which may come in handy and I’ve detailed some below.
