Either you can install using terminal as previous answers say,

sudo dpkg -i google-chrome-stable_current_i386.deb

Or else, You can double click the downloaded .deb file and it will be opened in Ubuntu Software Center(If you are using ubuntu). Then you can install it clicking on install button.

sudo dpkg -i google-chrome-stable_current_i386.deb

Check dpkg --help for more information.
