Ubuntu – How to get the bleeding edge Chromium


The following versions of Chromium are available at the moment :

All packages for Ubuntu Oneiric Ocelot.

However, as per Chromium Developer Calendar, the following versions are released for Linux:

linux   dev     16.0.904.0
linux   beta    15.0.874.92
linux   stable  14.0.835.202

Is there any way I can get the latest developer build running on my system (without compiling it)

  • Alternative Chromium PPA

    The PPAs above are not being updated at all. Alex Shkop has taken up responsibility to keep a better, more updated PPA set for chromium. They include:

    Note: The above PPAs are only for 12.04 at the moment.

    Bleeding Edge Chromium Binaries

    You can download the continuous builds from here. This will get you the last bleeding-edge chromium revision which passed the test suite.

    To install them, just extract the zip file somewhere (I use ~/apps/) and run the chrome binary inside.
