Chromium on Ubuntu

Chromium has gotten pretty useful now. Here's how I installed it from the Ubuntu PPA:

vim /etc/apt/sources.list
----- add -----
deb jaunty main
deb-src jaunty main
----- add -----
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys 4E5E17B5
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

Start with:

chromium-browser --enable-plugins

to get Flash support, which is a little buggy. Otherwise, its a pretty nice browser, and a decent option for Lean installs

  1. I'm glad you posted this. It led me to install chromium and try it out. It seems even faster than Seamonkey, and webpages look good with it too.
