It seems Curt's instructions to use dpkg to install the downloaded deb resulted in
creation of /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list containing
deb [arch=amd64] http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main
With any luck the next to search for such instruction will find this post instead of needing to
ask here, or better yet a Debian wiki page somewhere updated or created to include them and
googling to produce on first results page. :-p
