If it's not available in the Software Centre, or via Synaptic package manager; a stable version of Chrome is available directly from google as a .deb package. You can simply download the package and install it yourself!

Here's the link:

Personally I'd check the software centre or synaptic first, I think the Ubuntu version of Chrome is called Chromium, so you might want to try searching for that first. If it's not there, then use the link above and you can download and install it yourself!

Cheers for now,
Jas.

Probably not. Unless you are running processes on firefox while you are on chrome.

Search in the software center or synaptic for chromium. It isn't called chrome in the repository.

Its not called chromium, either. Chromium is a game in the repo. Its called chromium-browser, rather confusingly
