Chrome on Debian

November 7, 2009

I just installed google chrome on Debian. It’s really awesome that I can’t believe my eyes at first! I found that most sites I visited usually are well displayed in the layout. And the fonts in it are much better than in my iceweasel. From the screenshots down below, I can say that no one could tell I’m using Debian instead of Windows xp! Although the linux version of Chrome has been released for a while, I told myself that iceweasel is good enough with my collection of add-ons and Chrome is just another beautiful and fancy browser which doesn’t have much more practical value in everyday use. Now I found I’m WRONG! Except the "speed boom" on openning and loading web page, the fine layout and its simplicity is really fascinating! I really recommend it to others who still have doubt in Chrome. At least, it offers another good choice of browser to you. If you’re interested, you can download it here and installed it with "dpkg -i google-chrome-unstable_current_i386.deb". And voila, you can now enjoy it!
