I am using Chromium, which is still being updated and is at version 49 currently. However, Chromium does not support the Adobe Flash Player and Google Chrome does. So that is one reason a lot of folks like it.
And to install Chrome 64-Bit via PPA try the following:
1. We use Google’s official Linux software repository (PPA) that will automatically install and configure settings needed to keep your chrome browser up-to-date.
Before installing repository, we need to download and install Google’s Linux package signing Key that will automatically configure your package manager to verify the integrity of packages before downloading and installing on the system.
On an Debian based systems (Ubuntu, Linux Mint, etc.), use the following command to download the key and then use ‘apt-key‘ to add it to the system.
$ wget -q -O - https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo apt-key add -
2. After adding the key, run the following command to add chrome repository to your system sources.
$ sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google.list'
3. After adding chrome repository, you must do a system update to update the newly added chrome repository, using the following command.
$ sudo apt-get update4. Now, here Google PPA provides three chrome versions (stable, beta and unstable), so install whatever version you prefer.
Install Chrome Stable Version
$ sudo apt-get install google-chrome-stable
Installing Google Chrome Browser Using .Deb Package1. Go to Google Chrome download page and select your package or you can use following ‘wget‘ command to download and install the latest version.
Note: Google Chrome ends support for all 32-bit Linux distributions from March, 2016.
$ wget https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb $ sudo dpkg -i google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb
2. Once it’s installed, launch Google Chrome Browser with normal user.
