How to Install Chrome 10 beta and How to read local Languages (Telugu, Malayalam, Ta

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 checkboxes 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Elsewhere, security improvements include a new mechanism for disabling outdated plugins -- that is by default.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

Part 2 (How to install Telugu fount)
How to Install Telugu fount in Chrome 10 beta in ubuntu 10.10

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

{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.

Padma automatically transforms Indic text from proprietary formats to Unicode, so that user is able to review the page correctly without the proprietary fonts installed.}

after installing fount you can read telugu paper now

Sorry, but this is not a HowTo, it is advertising. Giving a simple link where to download a software can in no way be called a HowTo. By the way, this is the newbies section, it is not the appropriate place for HowTos.
Wow, just discovered that parts of it are simply copy/paste from the description of the plugin.
