Installing Google Chrome in Ubuntu 12.10 from the command line

Of course you can install Chromium, but hey I wanna use Google Chrome. To install from the command line, do:
$: cd ~/Downloads
$: wget https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_i386.deb
$: sudo dpkg -i ~/Downloads/google-chrome-stable_current_i386.deb
$: sudo apt-get -f install

The last line is needed to install the required dependencies and complete Chrome installation.
To install 64bit version of Chrome, you have to change download path to https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb, like:

$: wget https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb

Note(s):
* This applies to Debian 7 Wheezy
