    Chrome is based off Chromium, if you want Chrome got to the google page, google.com/Chrome. – Uri Herrera Aug 4 '12 at 7:03

Then do this,

To install Google Chrome in Ubuntu , press Ctrl – Alt – T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When Terminal opens, run the commands below to add Google repository key.

wget -q -O - https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo apt-key add -

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google.list

When the file opens, add the below line and save it.

deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main


sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install google-chrome-stable

It's just a simple thing. Go to https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/. Click on download and save the file.

Open terminal (ctrl+alt+T) and just type

sudo dpkg -i 

Drag and drop .deb package you downloaded and enter. Give user password and your Chrome will be installed.
