Yes, it's never been easier, download it here: https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/ (choose the debian/ubuntu .deb for your architecture)

Double click on the downloaded .deb file, it'll open with gdebi package installer which takes care of business - the installation automatically adds a stable ppa so you'll remain updated.
Thank you for this thread. That’s all I can say. You most definitely have made this forum into something special. You clearly know what you are doing, you’ve covered so many bases. Thanks!

Yes, I have Mint too - Mint is an Ubuntu derivative.
