Install Google Chrome (Chromium) On Ubuntu 9.04

Chromium is an open-source browser project that aims to build a safer, faster, and more stable way for all Internet users to experience the web. The Chromium codebase is the basis for Google’s Chrome browser.
Google Chrome have released a “developer only” version of Chrome saying you should NOT install it unless you are a developer.
To install it go to the Linux dev channel.
Click on either the 32 bit or the 64 bit version (which ever will match your architecture.)
Accept the terms of service.
Go to the directory the file was downloaded into, or better still copy the file in to your home directory and then issue the command :

sudo dpkg -i google-chrome-unstable*

Once the installation command has finished you are ready to run the browser. 
Open up a terminal window and issue the command :

google-chrome
You can find it under Applications > Internet
