I want to use a newer kernel for my ubuntu 12.04 system (32). Of course, I can download the latest that is for my 12.04 from, here http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/, but is it safe and wise to use one of the kernels here which bear the name of a newer version quantal and above. I want to use the latest stable - 3.11 as of this moment I want to try newer kernel because I have some problems with chrome and firefox rendering google maps the newer version, and on of the possible solutions proposed were newer drivers in newer kernels

Could you add why you want a newer kernel? What are you trying to achieve? –  MadMike Oct 23 '13 at 14:06

You don't mention which 12.04 version you installed. If it's 12.04.1 this might be the safest option. –  MadMike Oct 23 '13 at 19:06
