    Default Chrome as Root

    Here is how to run as root.

    Go to /usr/bin

    Edit google-chrome I did with Kate

    At the end of exec -a "$0" "$HERE/chrome" "$@"
    Add --user-data-dir
    So it looks like this
    exec -a "$0" "$HERE/chrome" "$@" --user-data-dir

    Just remember that running Chrome as root makes the sandbox useless. Not that thats stopped me from doing it, but just a warning to others. Thanks for the tip

    You can also just install the BETA and you don't have to worry about doing all the rooting stuff.

    just go to terminal and adduser chrome and then when your all done with that right click the backtrack icon in your menu bar and go to "Menu Editor" and select internet then Google chrome ot Chromium browser, advanced then run as different user and type chrome or what ever user you just created and that's all. Make sure you click on file, save on the top left corner to make sure you save your changes.You should be up and running in under a minute. Hope this helps out!
