Ubuntu Chrome Canary

Posted on  by admin
Google Chrome is, without a doubt, one of the best web browsers in the world. It’s fast, powerful and looks really great. Developed and maintained by Google, Chrome is available across a number of platforms – Windows, Linux, and mobile devices (Android, iOS etc.). If you’re using Ubuntu or any other Debian/Ubuntu based distro, you can easily install Google Chrome on your system using the official DEB package. We’ve discussed on installing Google Chrome in that way.

There is a lengthy discussion on Chromium Discuss regarding this: The reason. The release channels for chrome range from the most stable and tested (Stable channel) to completely untested and likely least stable (Canary channel). Note, you can run the Canary channel builds alongside any other channel, as they do not share profiles with other channels.

Today, we’ll follow a less troublesome and a better way of installing Google Chrome – using the official Google repository.

For getting access to the Chrome repository, you have to have the public key set in your system. Fire up a terminal and run the following commands –

wget-q-O - https://dl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub sudoapt-key add -

After the key is installed, it’s time to set the Google repository for Chrome.

sudosh-c'echo 'deb [arch=amd64] http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main'
>> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google.list'

If you’re a long time user of Google Chrome, you may already know about the various Google Chrome channels, for example, Beta, Canary etc. In the case of Linux, Google offers 3 different flavors of Chrome – Stable, Beta and Unstable. Unstable and Beta offers the bleeding edge features and other tweaks that are under revision. Those features may or may not come in the Stable channel anytime soon. If you would like to help the dev or enjoy the newest features, you can get them as your browser.

Run the following command –
