We were waiting for Google Chrome to become available for Linux for a couple of months.Today they released unstable version of Google Chrome.For the ones who do not know, it is NOT CHROMIUM, this is Google Chrome.Chromium is an open source browser project. Google Chrome is a browser from Google, based on the Chromium project.(However, they totally look same :) )Installing Google Chrome will add the Google repository so your system will automatically keep Chrome up to date.If you do not want to add the repository you can just use this command before the installation to disable it :
$sudo touch /etc/defaults/google-chrome
Installation :
Get the i386 deb (for 32 bit systems) from here or amd64 (for 64 bit systems) one from here.Now install it via double clicking the deb.
Now you can access Google Chrome via navigating Applications > Internet > Google Chrome or google-chrome command.
PS : At the moment there is no flash plugin, printing, complex text, complex tab dragging and gears support for Google Chrome like Chromium.Why would we use Google Chrome instead of using open source Chromium?
