    They call it a "beta" but it installed and ran with no problems in Kubuntu. Now Chrome runs natively in Linux!

    Yep, it seems very usable. Even the unstable pre-beta ran without issue for me (well, perhaps I didn't run it long enough to discover the issues).

    Is Chrome open source, or for open source you have to continue with Chromium?

    chromium ppa updates daily with huge amount of data...which is annoying...so i switched to chrome.
    (or i could have switched its update off, but hey it is me )

    Love it but I will have to wait before I make a permanent switch. The browsing experience is better than FF but the deal breaker for me has always been extensions. Chrome is almost there for me because there are literally only three extensions that I cannot live with out.

    1. Lastpass -- my password manager of choice now it works with Chrome. One down.

    2. Xmarks -- bookmark sync and now it works with Chrome. Two down.

    3. Wisestamp -- Multiple Gmail signatures. This extension still is not available for Chrome but is in the works. When it is or a better alternative is I will make the permanent switch.
