Google Chrome is not supported by my version of Linux.

A yellow bar appears in the Google Chrome browser whenever the program is started and tells you that no updates are available for your version of the operating system.

Fix: Go to the Ubuntu Software Centre and install Chromium which is almost the same as Google Chrome but works with older versions of Ubuntu etc.

This fix does not work for Windows Vista and XP. It works for Ubuntu because older versions are kept in the repository which Ubuntu uses.
