Regarding Google Chromium...

Postby craig10x on Sun Mar 06, 2011 2:42 pm

I currently have the latest stable release of Google Chrome (from their website) installed and it is having a problem with videos crashing the LMDE system when on the You Tube website only...From doing some research on the web (others having the problem also) it seems to relate to the built in flash Chrome has (which Chromium does uses your system's flash player)...

I was thinking of possibly switching to Chromium instead...However the current version in testing is very old (goes back over 6 months) and though there is a newer one in seems to be taking an awfully long time for them to send it to Testing...

Would it be a bad idea to download the deb file of the sid version of Chromium from the Debian site? Would that cause a problem for me down the line? If would i get updates on it? or would i have to re-install each time side has a new version?

Or how about adding the Chromium ppa as one would do in standard Mint edition to get updates on Chromium? Problems down the line or would be ok???

Or would it be best to go with that old version that is in debian testing and continue to wait for debian to move the newer one from sid into testing?

Thanks :)
