Installing & Running the Chromium Browser in Ubuntu

Ubuntu/Linux users who used to look enviously at Windows users of the Google Chrome browser can now take the alpha version of the open-source Chromium browser for Linux/Ubuntu for a spin. The latest build of Linux/Ubuntu Chromium now has support for Flash and extensions. If you haven't tried Chromium yet, now is a good time to try it. Note that this is an alpha build and isn't ready to be your sole browser. But with support Flash and extensions enabled, this browser is now far more usable and warrant greater attention being paid to it.

Here are the detailed instructions for installing Chromium in Ubuntu, as well as installing and enabling support for Flash and extensions.
