Installing Google chromium web browser in Linux

Many of tou are using google chrome web browser in windows ,which is a pretty good browser . Google chrome is not available yet for linux from google, but there is an open source project called Chromium using it you can install chrome in your linux
We need to add the Chromium browser repositories before we can install the browser. Add the below repositories of Chromium browser based on your Ubuntu distribution, in this case I have selected the repository for Ubuntu Jaunty Jackalope.

Go to System>>Administration>>Software Sources

Click add and add these two repositories

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

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

Update the Ubuntu repositories using the following command:

sudo apt-get update

Now let us install the Chromium browser using the following command:

sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

After the installation is complete you can find the Chromium (Google Chrome) browser from Applications>>Internet>>Chromium Web Browser
