Google chrome
« on: June 19, 2011, 07:08:01 am »
I've tried several times but can't get this built for my system and working.

Seems to me that this should be in our repositories already, since its becoming a major player now.

Its also smaller and faster than any browser we currently have in our repositories.

Please can someone package this?

May want to hold off on a Chrome 12 build. Especially if Google continues down the path of refusing to release updates for systems it deems "too old".

Haywire;
Since I believe you are giving vl7.0 a try, I believe you will find google-chrome in the repositories. Just make sure you have testing and extra enabled.
