Debian User Forums • View topic - google-chrome doesn't work after upgrade :

welcome to the shiny new world of Chrome.

It only works on Android with ICS , so why not need shiny newer hardware on Linux?

Google it, all kinds of people are having the same problem. No error message in console. It just doesn't start.

The reason I use chrome is because of the flash player. Chromium still works though. Do you know how to get flash in chromium?

I think Chrome is self-updating. Maybe it updated itself..
