Installed this on 4.3.2. Running really well. Only bug so far is Settings/options/under the bonnet/ clear browsing data/ popup window flashes at an alarming rate and is unusable LOL.
Here is some useful info............... the cache size cannot be set, so in no time at all, it is up to silly (by Puppy standards) sizes, like 50 mb after an hour of browsing. Here is the fix: you can set the cache size from the command line by using
Code:
--disk-cache-size=N
as a switch, where N is the max size allowed in bytes. Best way to do this is to append it to the command line in the .desktop file (/usr/share/applications/Google-Chrome.desktop) so that it reads
Code:
Exec=/opt/google/chrome/google-chrome --enable-internal-flash %U --disk-cache-size=10000
Note 10000 is just my choice, make this value whatever you want.
Drag the .desktop file onto the desktop and start Chrome by clicking it.
The cache is actually in /root/.cache and if you are using a frugal install you can drag this directory to /mnt/home and then symlink it back to keep it out of the save file.

If you prefer a more graphical download manager, you can use Uget (which I think comes standard with 4.3.2.
From chrome extensions, addblock, flashbloch, speed dial, all work very well.
