Although it is still an alpha version it already allows you to perform the regular navigation activities that you are used to with an incredible speed.
It’s layout is also a bit different of what we are used to, in my opinion it is great, KISS principle all the way. I also like the new functionalities like the task manager which allows you to take control over the used memory with each tab/window and the browser itself.
First of all you need to edit the /etc/apt/sources.list file:
$ sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
Add the following two lines at the bottom of the file:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu intrepid main deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu intrepid main
Now save/close the file and add the GPG key using the following command:
--rev-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 0xfbef0d696de1c72ba5a835fe5a9bf3bb4e5e17b5
Next we will update the source list and install the browser:
$ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install chromium-browser
If you want you can also enable flash support by copying (or linking) your previously installed flash library into browser plugins directory:
$ sudo cp /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/chromium-browser/plugins
And you are done, next time you run it you will only need to specify the plugins usage with following command:
$ chromium-browser --enable-plugins
