Google released the beta version of Chrome for Linux and Mac today. The packaged files for major distributions are availabe at http://www.google.com/chrome.
Users who were already using the dev channel version can find the beta packaged seperately in synaptic . Trying to install the beta will prompt you to uninstall the unstable version though. Try out and give your feedbacks. With extensions coming in thick and fast, personally i feel google chrome will shape up to be a great browser for the linux environment.
Along with chrome, chromium,the open source version of google chrome, also enters the beta stage.
Keep up the good work google! And the chromium devs too!
