What's happening is that the word "supported" in this message does not mean what you think it means. When Google says "this system will no longer be supported", what they say is "we will stop providing Chrome update for this system". On the other hand, when Canonical says "Ubuntu 14.04 will be supported for five years", what they say is "packages in the ...

Google Chrome is not Ubuntu. Your 14.04 Ubuntu release and all software from the official repositories will be fully supported until April 2019.

Yes, 64-bit Ubuntu will work on your computer. Intel Core 2 Duo processors support the 64-bit architecture, and 4GB RAM is enough memory to make installing Ubuntu 64-bit give improved performance.

Maybe yes, maybe no. Insert the USB key, wait several seconds for it to be mounted, then type mount. It will give you several lines of output, one of which applies to the USB key. On my system (YMMV) this is (for one of my USB keys): /dev/sdb1 on /media/walt/ADATA UFD type vfat ...

You could build Chromium from source. There are instructions here. Brotli can be enabled in Chrome-like browsers via chrome://flags#enable-brotli Brotli is also in Firefox from version 44 onwards. That's currently Firefox Beta so you could get that from here.

I experienced the same problem today. I reverted Chrome to the older version. NOTE: This will only work when you haven't removed apt's cache with sudo apt-get clean The old file is at /var/cache/apt/archives/google-chrome-stable_47.0.2526.111-1_amd64.deb. Hence I ran $ sudo dpkg -i /var/cache/apt/archives/google-chrome-stable_47.0.2526.111-1_amd64.deb ...
