Day 1019: Do Not Install Google Chrome

Just kidding. No really, they said don't install it.
Anyway, here's how to install it:


If you want to install it on an Ubuntu 8.04 or up machine. Simply click the following debs:

*Install it with Gdebi
*Warning. Google really did say don't install it unless you're the tinkering type.

If you are running a Debian based system and would prefer to do this via the cli. Here are the steps.


1. Download the appropriate deb file



        For 32-bit
$ wget http://www.google.com/chrome/intl/en/eula_dev.html?dl=unstable_i386_deb
        For 64-bit
$ wget http://www.google.com/chrome/intl/en/eula_dev.html?dl=unstable_amd64_deb
2. Install it via dpkg


$ sudo dpkg -i name_of_debfile_you_just_downloaded.deb

OPTIONAL: If you want to add the chrome directory permanently to the environment path variable add the following steps:


a. $ sudo gedit ~/.bashrc

add this at the end:


b. export PATH="$PATH:/opt/google/chrome/"


c. Restart the terminal

So instead of typing /opt/google/chrome/chrome on your terminal you just type 'chrome' and it will run, hopefully.

Here are a few screenshots of Google Chrome browsing the websites of egads! other browsers!
