    Anyone using Chrome/Chromium 28?

    I understand that Chrome 28, the dev version, has Blink which is the forked version of WebKit. If you do use it, how does it feel? Any benefits that an end-user will notice?

    I'd (very much) like to use Chromium, but the problem is - what PPA to add?? :-0

    Official builds had been dropped..:(

    Code:
    https://launchpad.net/~chromium-daily/+archive/stable
    Code:
    https://launchpad.net/~chromium-daily/+archive/ppa
    ... and many ppl are making it; but, it's got so many flags and options, it's hard to know what's-what. :f

    You wouldn't notice any difference at this point anyway, they are just starting development on blink so at present NO difference would be noticed at all...
    Also i think the Canary (testing) version of Chrome is not available for linux...at least that is what the Canary web page says...
    Canary is not unstable (THAT you can get) it's Chrome Testing...it's only in that version...

    You don't need to use any PPA, just get the .deb or .tar file off of the google chrome/chromium install page, and install it. For a how-to on installing a tarball, see http://www.tuxfiles.org/linuxhelp/softinstall.html .

    Not to worry. I'm on Chrome Stable.

    very good...too dangerous
    most "daring" i ever got was running Chrome Beta on a live session of ubuntu....
    actually, it seemed quite stable to me...but i will stick with Stable...
