Ubuntu 10.04 to Include Chromium Web Browser

Published on by Jim Mendenhall

While Firefox will remain Ubuntu’s default web browser, the Ubuntu community has added the Chromium browser to Lucid Lynx’s repositories. Chromium is the open source version of Google’s Chrome web browser. In Lucid Lynx Alpha 3, the Chromium browser is super easy to install right form the Ubuntu Software Center. The current version of Chromium is from the 5.0 branch and seems to be very stable. Hopefully, this package will be kept up-to-date as Google seems to be upgrading Chrome at an amazing pace.

To install Chromium web browser, just search for “chromium” in the Ubuntu Software Center and click “Install” - it’s really that easy!
