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.

  • will my bookmark and plugins lost after this ? – rab Feb 5 '17 at 7:45

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.
