Install Chrome 11 Beta in Ubuntu 10.10/11.04

Although I'm not a big fan of the feeling of simplicity the Chrome delivers (other than the clean GUI), Google treats you like a 7-year-old with that lack of menus, options etc. But the rest assured, it is FAST!, which is one of the main reasons behind its reputation (+ the GUI too actually).

Anyway, if you run Ubuntu 10.10 or 11.04 then you could try the latest beta which is the version 11 because this beta brings a lot of changes such as  HTML5 speech to text Recognition, faster web page rendering, a new icon for the browser, better use of your GPU thus reducing a lot of CPU which makes it more faster and takes less system resources... are just a few to mention.

Open your terminal and issue the below command to install Chrome 11beta in Ubuntu...

sudo echo “deb stable non-free main” | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo -s
wget -q -O – | apt-key add -
apt-get update
sudo apt-get install google-chrome-beta
