Google Chrome on Ubuntu

Google Chrome

If your using Ubuntu you can now start using Chrome, or Chromium as its known amongst the linux community. Daily builds of Chromium can be got from here.

You’ll need to add the following repositories to get Chromium:

Note: Substitute interpid with jaunty or hardy as needed!


deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu intrepid main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu intrepid main

Then you can then install it by opening a terminal and do the following command:
sudo apt-get install chromium-browser
Of course this is still in Pre-Alpha so make sure to keep another browser installed! 😉

  1. From what I remember, Google Chrome is not the same as chromium, but is based on it. Chromium is open source.

    Very true Thomas, but its as close as your getting on linux at the moment! Well, unless you use WINE! 😀
