Google's Chrome browser comes from the open-source Chromium project, but it's not an easy install on Linux. One friendly Ubuntu user makes it much easier with a repository hosting a shaky-but-working Chromium build. Actually, it may not work for everyone, or at least work the first time, as this editor found out. But it does install with a single command and, if it works, browses the basic non-Flash web pretty snappily. The up-top tab bar, crash detection, and a host of other features currently available in Windows aren't there yet, but it's a native, non-Wine-based build, and it's updated daily with the latest code from the Chromium project. Follow the instructions at either link below for help installing and launching Chromium on your system, and tell us what you think (or how far you got, or how you fixed it) in the comments.
