  1. Please remove my two previous posts, I’m a bit tired:

    I think there’s a better way of doing it. Simply follow instructions from Google Repos for Debian Howto modifying the last step to:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install google-chrome-stable

    This way you’ll have Google Chrome updated automatically!

  2. No need to manually add the Google repository, when you install Chrome it adds the repo to your sources.list.

    Note: Installing Google Chrome will add the Google repository so your system will automatically keep Google Chrome up to date. If you don’t want Google’s repository, do “sudo touch /etc/default/google-chrome” before installing the package.

    If you want the dev version do apt-get install google-chrome-unstable

    google-chrome-unstable:
    Installed: 6.0.466.0-r52279
    Candidate: 6.0.466.0-r52279
