Google Chrome not released yet for Linux, but there’s other way to install google chrome inside ubuntu by using wine. And this is the tutorial to install Google Chrome in Ubuntu by using Wine.

5. Install the chrome, and follow the instructions,

6. After the install is finished, you won’t be able to use Chrome as it needs a bit more hacking. Just close it and opent with your favorite editor the Google Chrome.desktop icon created on your Desktop. Make sure your add “–new-http –in-process-plugins”, without the quotes at the end of this line:

Exec=env WINEPREFIX=”/home/jonathan/.wine” wine “C:\\windows\\profiles\\jonathan\\Local Settings\\Application Data\\Google\\Chrome\\Application\\chrome.exe”

to make it look like this:
Exec=env WINEPREFIX=”/home/mimir/.wine” wine “C:\\windows\\profiles\\jonathan\\Local Settings\\Application Data\\Google\\Chrome\\Application\\chrome.exe” –new-http –in-process-plugins

Save the file!

HTTPS Note: it seems that the https is not working due to the fact that wine is missing TSL/SSL features, the dlls that should handle that being just stubs at the moment. If you can solve this things or know how to fix this problem, please share in here.
