Google Chrome for linux


Google Chrome releases updates to different release channels. Subscribing to the Beta or Dev channel means you'll get more frequent (but less stable) updates and you'll get to try new features first. There are three release channels:
  • Stable channel. Everyone is on the Stable channel when they first install Google Chrome. The Stable channel is updated with features and fixes once they have been thoroughly tested in the Beta channel. If you want a rock solid browser but don't need the latest features, the Stable channel is for you.
  • Beta channel. People who like to use and help refine the latest features subscribe to the Beta channel. Every month or so, we promote stable and complete features from the Dev channel to the Beta channel. The Beta channel is more stable than Dev, but may lack the polish one expects from a finished product.
  • Developer preview channel. The Dev channel is where ideas get tested (and sometimes fail). The Dev channel can be very unstable at times, and new features usually require some manual configuration to be enabled. Still, simply using Dev channel releases is an easy (practically zero-effort) way for anyone to help improve Google Chrome.
Note: Early access releases (Dev and Beta channels) will be only partly translated into languages other than English. Text related to new features might not get translated into all languages until the feature is released in the Stable channel.

For Linux

Requires Intel Pentium 4 / Athlon 64 or later CPU, and 32 or 64 bit Ubuntu 8.04 or later, or 32 bit Debian 5. Support for other Linux distributions is planned; unpacking the .deb files by hand may work.
Installing Google Chrome will add the Google repository so your system will automatically keep Chrome up to date. (If you don't want Google's repository, do "sudo touch /etc/defaults/google-chrome" before installing the package.)
Note: The Linux build still lacks certain privacy features, and is not appropriate for general consumer use.

Download and install the package appropriate for your system (just clicking on it should do the right thing):
