I need to install google-chrome on debian stable. Is there any way I can add the google's repos and have always the recent version of chrome installed?

From Google's Linux Repostory Page:

Add Google's key,

wget -q -O - https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo apt-key add -

Then install package from the chrome site, which should add the file '/etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list' that will contain the following,

# You may comment out this entry, but any other modifications may be lost.
deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main

E.g., installing the package from Google should just auto-configure your sources.list for you.

I don't have a browser currently installed and it won't download through links. I just need to add the google repo stuff to my repos and apt-get update and then install the package. –  tux_drummer Nov 1 '12 at 13:17
