A while ago I tried to run Google Chrome in WINE but I was stopped right at the installation. After a little Googling, I found out that Chromium runs in Linux too. I just downloaded the .deb and I’m going to install it.
The install is basically the same as any .deb file, a box with a statusbar saying “Installing Package File”
It put it’s own entry in my Applications menu.
It looks exactly the same on Linux as Windows. This is because its not a native linux application. It’s using Crossover to basically run chrome like a windows app.
Unfortunatly, it is extremely laggy but it was a fun experiment. I don’t think i will keep it on my computer though.
Here is a screenshot of it running on my desktop:
