Google Chrome is only released for Windows platform(Windows XP/Vista/7). For other platforms it is still in development stage. There is a development build available at Chrome Dev Channel.

Install Google Chrome on Mac

Install Google Chrome on Linux

  • Requirements: Intel Pentium 4 / Athlon 64 or later CPU; 32- or 64-bit Ubuntu 8.04 or later, or 32-bit Debian 5. Support for other Linux distributions is planned; unpacking the .deb files by hand may work.
  • Note: Installing Google Chrome will add the Google repository so your system will automatically keep Chrome up to date. If you don't want Google's repository, do "sudo touch /etc/default/google-chrome" before installing the package.

  • For 32-bit systems: google-chrome-unstable_current_i386.deb
  • For 64-bit systems: google-chrome-unstable_current_amd64.deb

Remember, Dev channel browsers may still crash frequently. See bug-reporting-guidlines-for-the-mac-linux-builds before reporting problems in Mac or Linux Dev channel builds.
