Is it possible to keep the two in parallel ? I know you can on windows and osx on ubuntu I get a conflict when trying to install either one if the other is installed.

  • Where come from your canary chrome for linux ? I can't find it anywhere... – Cédric Julien Jun 1 '12 at 14:03

Chrome Canary builds are not available for Linux, so there's no way to get them running.


It's not exactly what you asked for, but I would suggest using Chrome for your daily browsing and Chromium latest version in parallel for development.

You can find the latest Chromium builds on the CI: http://commondatastorage.googleapis.com/chromium-browser-continuous/index.html

And more detailed information over there: http://linuxsagas.digitaleagle.net/2012/11/20/canary-alternative-for-ubuntu/


You can install the development version in a chroot: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BasicChroot
