How to Install Chrome 10 beta and How to read local Languages (Telugu, Malayalam, Tamil, Devanagari) news paper and other Languages in Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick)

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Elsewhere, security improvements include a new mechanism for disabling outdated plugins -- that is by default.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

How to Install Docky in Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick)

What Is Docky?

Docky is an advanced shortcut bar that sits at the bottom, top, and/or sides of your screen. It provides easy access to some of the files, folders, and applications on your computer, displays which applications are currently running, holds windows in their minimized state, and more.

To install Docky from a terminal, use the commands below

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:docky-core/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install docky

Docky will be added under Accessories in the Applications menu.

When you first launch Docky you will get a pretty simple dock on the bottom of your screen. You can drag and drop your application icons to rearrange them, and drag applications from the applications menu to Docky to add them. Pull an icon from Docky out and it will disappear in a puff of smoke.
Click on the blue Docky logo to open the configuration window. While this window is open, you can click and drag to reposition the dock. You can manage multiple docks with the “New Dock” and “Delete Dock” buttons. Click a dock to select and configure it, the current dock will glow blue.
You can choose between themes and hiding modes, as well as change the icon and zoom sizes. Be sure to check out the 3D background mode, which can also be combined with any theme for a different look. Also, the intellihide hiding mode only hides the dock when the current window would be obscured by the dock.
