Guess the Beta Update Date, Win Eternal Internet Fame and Glory

Real soon now, we should be seeing a major update land on the beta channel as Google declares the 0.10.xxx builds stable enough for beta channel. Here's what we know:
  • Last night, Google bumped Chrome browser beta channel to 10.xxx builds and Chrome browser dev channel to 0.11.xxx builds. The Chrome browser and Chrome OS releases schedules are closely tied together.
  • The number of priority 1 bugs on crosbug.com that are left to be fixed for the R10 release (0.10.xxx) has dropped to 19. That's down from 69 early this week and a few hundred 2 weeks ago.
  • Google is striving for a 6 week release schedule with Chrome OS like they have with Chrome browser.
So when do you think a 0.10 build will land on beta channel? Take the poll here. Winners will receive eternal Internet fame and glory (translation: I'll post your name and shout out message to my blog). Good luck!
