I'm currently having an issue with chrome beta (i. e., this problem).

How can I switch to Google Chrome stable? How would I go back if I want the beta again?

Did you install Chrome using ppa? – ignite Sep 11 '12 at 2:02

It was actually simpler than I thought it would be.

  1. Open Synaptic Package Manager
  2. Quick filter: "chrome"
  3. google-chrome-beta: "Mark for removal"
  4. google-chrome-stable: "Mark for installation"
  5. Press "Apply".

If you want to go back to the beta channel, do the reverse in steps 3 and 4.
