I want to install Google Chrome Nightly (the dev version) next to the stable version. Is there a PPA for Nightly and 12.04?

These are the only PPAs I found and they are not working on 12.04 yet.

You can download Google Chrome's dev version here:

Do note that Google Chrome's binaries automatically add the repositories. So, you will receive updates as and when Google Chrome's dev version is updated.

Thanks. Is it possible to install it side by side with the stable version? When trying to install the dev version it cancels and tells me that it collides with the stable version. – js-coder Apr 28 '12 at 13:56
@dotweb Side by side? No, that is not possible. – jokerdino Apr 28 '12 at 14:00
What a pity. :( – js-coder Apr 28 '12 at 14:02
As an aside, the dev version is not the same as a nightly and is not the same as canary. Canary is more up to date than dev... – jmort253 Aug 20 '12 at 20:40
@jmort253 The OP mentioned dev version inside the question. I followed that.. And there is no canary version outside of Windows. – jokerdino Aug 21 '12 at 5:57
