Google Chrome size

I was doing some cleaning out of my SSD because it's a little short of space. I use an app called What Size that shows the size of all files in a pretty organized way.

One thing I noticed is that Google Chrome is 9.77 GB in size! Why is the app that big? What Size shows that there are actually many copies of Chrome, I assume updates. When I look in the finder, it shows that the app is 9.77 GB. Can I safely delete all of the old copies?

Toss them out. I have done this a few times with no problems. It looks like if you do a new install of Chrome, it only keeps the current and one previous version, tossing the older versions automagically.

Ok, tossed all of the old ones and now the app is down to 204.4MB. Not sure that it should keep all of the updates considering how often Chrome updates, but if I've got to delete them manually, then I'm fine with that if I can reclaim 9GB of space.
