You might want to have more than one web browser on your ubuntu, specially if you are developing websites or web app which need to be tested on different browser. Besides firefox, chrome, opera, you can also install chromium.
Chromium is very similar with google chrome web browser, the different is chromium is open source and maintain by community of developers, unlike google chrome which is close source code and maintain by google itself.
Just like google chrome, chromium also have dependencies with other packages, so first we need to install those packages, open up your terminal/console/command line, and then run this command:
sudo apt-get install libappindicator1
sudo apt-get install fonts-liberation
Alright if those two packages are properly installed, next we can go ahead install chromium web browser. Run this command from command line/console/terminal:
sudo apt-get install chromium-browser
