I’ve had that update fail. I know it updates by itself , or should, but the normal user is not going to go to chrome://about to find out they are out of date. Only the advanced user will think of doing this. The last time chrome updated to 100x it took about 2 or so week before I got the update for what ever reason and I use chrome daily as my default. I checked with chocolety and chrome 100x was there, and updated without needing to launch chrome.

Re: [nvda] NVDA is not reading out buttons in Chrome browser
You may do things in ways that computer users generally don't do things. That doesn't mean that the general user should do things in a different way. Chrome-based browsers update in the background. and on what do you base your distrust of about dialogs? I haven't seen one computer advisor nor anyone else say they are unreliable.
I have no objection to you doing things as you wish but you are making statements and implications that updating Chrome-based browsers as most computer users do is unreliable or in some way a disadvantage to what you do, with which I most emphatically disagree.

I’d rather update through chocolety, as it updates in the background, and I have about 30 other windows apps I update in this way, all at once. I don’t trust the about dialogue, ever, not in chrome anyway. Give me a package manager any day, or give me the installer so I can just update by hand and keep the follinstaller around in case I have to reinstall from scratch.
You don't need to update in that way. Chrome-based browsers are supposed to automatically update. But instead of installing the program to update it, if it isn't automatically updating, use the about dialog. That dialog tells you if an update is available and there is an update button. Once you open the about dialog, it may be in slightly different places depending on the Chrome-based browser you are using, have browse mode on. If you can't move through the interface with the arrow keys, manually turn on Browse mode and it will be accessible and similar to a web page. There is information at or near the top of the page about updating and whether you are up to date.
In Chrome, about is in the help submenu.
