Install Google Chrome in Debian Wheezy XFCE

In order to install chrome, you will need to do the following.

1) Download the Google Chrome Installer ( I am using the 32 bit .deb)

Alternatively, download DEB file directly.
For 32-bit systems:
wget -c https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_i386.deb
For 64-bit systems:
wget -c wget https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb

2) As a root install three packages that are required in order to install Chrome:
apt-get install libxss1 libcurl3 

3) Now change the directory to wherever you downloaded Chrome, in my case it went to the default /home/$USER/Downloads folder, and run the following command:
dpkg -i google-chrome-stable_current_i386.deb

4) If you happen to receive errors about missing packages, you can fix it by running:
apt-get -f install

You should now see chrome under the applications menu under Internet Applications.
