Very true. Everyone has their own way of doing things.
Your method does require manually changing the version in the .info and
downloading the .deb, whereas the latest-chrome script will check for a
newer release than the one you're running, if there is one, it'll download
it and repackage it into a .tgz automatically. If you pass the -i option to
the script, it'll even install/upgrade it.
I don't keep up with releases at all, but every few weeks, I'll just run
latest-chrome.sh -i as root and it'll update my installed chrome if needed.
