Install Google Chrome in Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal!

Personally I don't like the Google Chrome browser that much, because you know... it's too simplified which is also the case with Gnome but with Chrome I can always use the excellent Firefox4 :D... but with Gnome... well, I"m still looking for an alternative, OK, I'm stuck :(.

Anyway, Canonical is going to release their next major OS "update" which is the version 11.04 called the Ubuntu Natty Narwhal. Now many who simply can't wait for the next few days, have already downloaded and installed the latest & final beta version 2.

So, if you already use the Ubuntu Unity beta and want to try the Google Chrome (oh it's fast!) then you can do it easily as it was with the previous version of Ubuntu as well. 

Although the desktop have changed dramatically from the Gnome to Unity... but still other major core applications such as the Kernel and application managers are the same, so installing new applications can be done using the same old methods nonetheless.

So to install Google Chrome in Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal, open your Terminal and enter the below command.
sudo echo "deb stable main non-free" | sudo tee-a / etc / apt / sources.list
wget-q-O - https: / / | apt-key add -
apt-get update

To install the stable version... enter the below command.
sudo apt-get install google-chrome-stable

For the beta version, enter this command.
sudo apt-get install google-chrome-beta

For all those dudes and dudes :) ... willing to take a bit of a risk and want to install the unstable/latest version... well use the next command instead.
sudo apt-get install google-chrome-unstable
