I decided to try out Google Chrome and see if it was any different from Chromium, but now I can't figure out how to uninstall it. enter image description here That's what I have installed. How to get rid of it is the question.

It is unfortunate that Ubuntu won't show Chrome in the installed software list or anywhere else when searched as "Chrome", "Google" or "Google Chrome". I HAD to type "google-chrome"... So much for Unity :\ – itsols Oct 25 '13 at 13:38

Run sudo apt-get remove google-chrome-stable in a terminal.

It's usually better to purge:

sudo apt-get purge google-chrome-stable

and then

sudo apt-get autoremove

This will make sure you don't have unnecessary packages remaining, and will remove config files, saving a little space and making sure it won't interfere with other programs or future reinstallations.
