What I love so much about Ubuntu is that everything stays up to date with periodic updates without me having to worry about it. However, when I installed Chromium - I saw that it was way outdated. I went to System > Update and nothing showed up. How do I keep it up to date then? Googled a bit and found this to be actually a problem with many. What do I do?

Thanks to anyone who helps.

Hi Alvas. :)

I found this to be a problem myself. The only Ubuntu variant that supports the updates is Lubuntu which uses it as the default browser. You can ether remove Chromium and download the source code and attempt to compile an updated version or download something like Google Chrome or SRWare Iron.

I used to use Chrome before, but there's this stupid problem I'm having with it. Is SRWare Iron similar to Chromium? And does it support syncing to Google?

Yes. Actually it's just a recompiled version for different OS's such as Windows or Ubuntu.

Thanks for your help Jordan. :)

That problem I had was fixed by re-installing Chrome - so not a problem for me now. But for those of you who still want to keep Chromium updated, there's an unofficial PPA - more info at this thread on AskUbuntu.
