Lubuntu 17.10 may comes with default web browser which is firefox, but if you want to use something else like google chrome, then go for it. In this article i will show you how to install google chrome on lubuntu 17.10 artful.

There are two ways to install debian package of google chrome, you can download and then install using command line or you can download and install using software install (graphical interface).

Using the graphical interface may seems easier to do, but the problem is sometimes it's not working, but other times works, that's why i prefer installing using command line.
