Part 1 (How to install Chrome)

Google released the latest beta of Chrome,version 10, celebrating the move to double figures with some very interesting new features. Google has kept Chrome development at breakneck pace since the first beta released in September 2008.

According to a Google blog post, Chrome 10′s new Crankshaft version of its V8 JavaScript engine now runs scripts some 66 percent faster than previous versions, as measured by theV8 benchmark suite.The new beta build also includes hardware-accelerated video, which Google says may cut CPU usage by as much as 80 percent when running full-screen, assisting performance generally and extending your battery life.

Google also revamped the settings interface, which now appears in a tab as opposed to a dialog box, an approach that reminds of Chrome OS running on Google's unbranded Cr-48 notebook. This also includes a search box, so if you're not sure where to find a particular option, just enter a related keyword, like "language," and Chrome will display anything related: font customizations, language and spell-checker settings, the Translate option, and more.

These aren't links to the settings, either; they're the same buttons, lists and check boxes that users may have found when searching through the options themselves, making the options needing tweaks more immediately available. Clearly improving convenience and ease of use are priorities for this release.

Elsewhere, security improvements include a new mechanism for disabling outdated plug-ins --- that is by default. Should users choose to enable Chrome Sync then, by default, they now also get password synchronization across all their Chrome installations.

There's plenty to offer, then, and despite the beta tag the browser seemed fast and reliable in our initial tests. If you'd like to try it for yourself then the download is http://www.chromium.org/getting-involved/dev-channel

Part 2 (How to install Telugu fount)

How to Install Telugu fount in Chrome 10 beta in Ubuntu 10.10

if you want to read a Telugu paper (eenadu and other) just install padam fount from this link

https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/ngifghlmhidnielinpjdkkiadocdffbi

{Even though Indic scripts are supported through Unicode by modern platforms and browsers, many Indic websites still use the old non-Unicode font base encodings. Without those proprietary fonts installed in user's computer, those pages can not be rendered correctly.}

after installing fount you can read Telugu paper now

    And one doesn’t need any complex procedure to install chrome (or chromium) on ubuntu.

    Download chrome installation package (.deb) from google and double click it.

    Chromium browser is available through software center. A single click on that or a “sudo apt-get install chromium-browser” command on terminal will install chromium browser.

    @T.P. Pathak, I think Amit Mendapara is clear. BTW is is possible to create your own keyboad.

    @kanna, Actually you dont need to apply any of above commands to read unicode-Telugu on ubuntu. Try Telugu wikipedia (http://te.wikipedia.org).

    But it is not possible to include any (or all) customized ASCII fonts in Ubuntu. Probably eenadu is using one of them. Try any ASCII to Unicode coverter like Padma.

    What took you this long? And Why you took this here? :)

    That article says padma is the only way to read Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, etc. It is completely wrong. Some sites (like eenadu) are using non-standard formats to display indic letters. Padma just converts those formats to unicode and uses ubuntus own unicode fonts to display those content. That article also makes an impression that padma is the only way to type Indian Languages on ubuntu. It is also wrong. Padma only works in browser but ibus available in ubuntu gives the ability to type almost any Indian languages almost anywhere.

    Alternatively you can install eenadu font ( available at http://www.eenadu.net/font.zip) in ubuntu to read eenadu without padma.

    I believe I said enough about this issue.

    Thank you

    Try, http://www.eenadu.net/font.zip

    There was an extra bracket on URL. I am sure you know about it and you are intentionally trying to extend discussion. :( BTW I got that link from eenadu site itself.
