Ubuntu users who want to try Google Chrome can now do so by installing Chromium, an open source project based on the Chrome code. Ubuntu Geek has all the details, which will install the browser and also add the nightly build to your repositories. Some things don’t work yet like flash (although they are getting closer in nightly builds) and the ability to print.
Nevertheless, the browser itself is very nice and extremely fast. I find it is as fast, if not more, than Firefox. That said, this is before it gets boggled down with plugins, themes, and extensions like Firefox can become if you aren’t careful. I look forward to what comes next for Chromium and appreciate an open source port of another web browser.
