Lets say you would like to add chromium daily builds PPA repository to your sources.list and import its key:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chromium-daily

Thats it!!

the repository is stored in :

/etc/apt/sources.list.d/chromium-daily-ppa-karmic.list

the key is automagically added.

Trying Chromium

It has been a a while since i did some blogging here, but since I am having a look at Cromium for Linux, I thought it would be a good idea to make some notes.
Chromium can be enhanced with extensions and themes. I changed my theme to Earthy and added 2 extensions, one for the weather and one for blocking ads.
The theme I chose matched nicely with my Ubuntu theme. (I use ArchLinux) A nice feature in the settings it that you are able to hide the system bar, and use gtk+ theme.
There is no clutter in Chromium, the tabs look smooth, and its a pleasant browser to work with.
If you want to browse anonymously you can simply open an “incognito window”.
It hardly uses any resources, even with the 9 tabs I have opened opened.
I like Chromium, it might become my default browser.
