Note: There isn't a Vista x64 specific version, but the normal 32-bit version appears to work fine.

Also: I've posted a Google Chrome Beta screenshot gallery.

Barb told me (correctly) that it installs under C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application in Vista for some reason, instead of in Program Files or Program Files (x86). That's just weird.
