I just use the stable version. I don't have time for testing the other builds.

Under Linux, I tend to use the beta version (or at least, stable + 1), but it's not something I did on purpose. Because of the rapid-release cycles here, the most recent version of Chrome is never declared stable until we're one version behind, so I end up "unmasking" versions that are considered to be in "testing", and for that reason I end up using the beta version, or even a version ahead of that.
In Windows, I stick with the stable version. More often than not, the additions made to the betas are going to be unnoticeable to me. It might be different if I were a Web designer, but I just don't feel any sort of draw to using a beta version of a browser. It's a little different with games or some other applications where new features -are- evident, but there's so little that changes with a browser every three months. Honestly, I probably couldn't tell the difference between the Chrome I am using now and one 4 versions ago.
Interesting about the Canary build though, had no idea that existed. It's essentially a nightly I guess.
