Google-chrome 5.0.517.41 Stable

Hi all

Here is the latest stable release of the google-chrome browser repackaged for MyWolfe or any puppy Linux 4.3 or higher. This is for those who prefer to run only the stable released of software. I for one have been running the dev releases for a while now and find them fine but I do try and get things for everybody.

If you are not currently running google-chrome you will also need the lib files so you can download them here.
