[ Thanks to Stefano F. (tacone) for this link. ]

"Before explaing how to install it, let me just specify we’re talking about alpha builds, and pretty incomplete ones. Just basic web surfing works.: Chromium may don't work, make your loose data or make your loose your cat. Remember if that anything breaks, you're on your own - install it only if you're confortable with restoring your system/data. Also keep in mind this disclaimer on the PPA's launchpad page:

"Ubuntu daily builds of the Chromium browser.
The PPA is maintained by a bot, so it contains completely untested builds, mostly useful to track regressions or if you are curious, or just brave.
The package is still a work-in-progress, so is Chromium, please be patient.
FAQ: no native 64bit debs planed for now. The amd64 package is using ia32-libs.
Project page for Chromium in Ubuntu:
https://launchpad.net/chromium-project"
