The desktop edition of Ubuntu comes with the excellent Mozilla Firefox browser. However, Google’s Chrome browser, released in late 2008, has gained a powerful following. Google makes Chrome available for a variety of platforms, and Ubuntu 16.10 Yakkey Yak is no exception.
To install Chrome on Ubuntu, first visit the Google Chrome website:
Click on the Download button, which will take you to the download page. Select the 64-bit version for Ubuntu. Hit the accept and install button, and the Chrome installer will download.
Once the download is complete, you’ll have a *.deb installer package for Chrome in your Downloads folder. Double-click on it to launch the installer. You’ll be taken to the Ubuntu Software application. Click on the Install button to begin the installation of Chrome.
You’ll need to enter your password to authenticate, and then follow the default prompts to install Chrome.
After the installation is complete, you can launch Chrome by clicking on the Dash (the Ubuntu icon on the upper-left hand corner of your screen), searching for Chrome, and clicking on the Chrome icon.
