There is another way to go about it. If you trust Google's Linux software repository, you can install the repo's GPG key first: https://www.google.com/linuxre...

After that, all downloads from Google, e.g. apt-get install google-chrome-stable, gets the same GPG verification as anything from Debian/Ubuntu. Downloads are still over HTTP, just like Debian/Ubuntu, because the GPG verification is there to actually verify the downloads.
