Google Chrome is one of the most popular browsers used world wide with over 200 Million active users, which is a really big number that keeps Google keep on developing it more and more, and releasing beta and developer versions as well.

The latest update to the Dev channel is to the version 17.0.928.0 for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Chrome Frame. But you should always keep in mind that Developer preview will probably have much more bugs than Beta versions. So, don’t depend on it totally as it’s not a bug free version.

You can still access it from the address bar by typing chrome://extensions/ or chrome://settings/extensions in the address bar.
