Got any setup issues? If Google Chrome installer does not work for you (nothing happens, when opening it), there might be nothing wrong with it.
In fact, if you already have Chrome installed and trying to upgrade it, installation might run silently.
After you have “launched” setup, just open “About Google Chrome” and see version number. It’s highly possible, that you are already running your preferred release.
Here is one more tip/extension for Firefox users. With simple add-on “Hide GUI Bars” you can hide various GUI elements, such as: menu, navigation bar, tabs, bookmarks and statusbar using toggle keys (CTRL+Shift+A).
Ever accidentally pressed CTRL+Q or any other hot key, when you didn’t really need that? Fortunately, extension called “keyconfig” will help you on this.
Not only you can change and disable hotkeys for Firefox and Thunderbird, but also: Sunbird, Flock, ChatZilla on XULRunner, Prism, Songbird, McCoy, SeaMonkey 2.0, etc.
keyconfig adds the ability to create new or modify existing shortcuts defined by a element, but only changing those which itself call a function (those with a command or oncommand attribute) has an effect (all others fulfill only cosmetic purposes it seems and are grayed out).
After it’s installed, just hit Ctrl+Shift+F12 (Tools > Keyconfig), find CTRL+Q and click on “Disable” button. That’s it.

Save settings and you’re done.
While you won’t be able to view just about any page using Flash (sites need to add this runtime first), there are still some great things left to do; for instance: playing .swf games.
If you are curious enough, here are some of the flash demos already made.
