Can't install Chrome on Ubuntu 13.04

Having just installed the Ubuntu Gnome 13.04 Beta 2 one of the first things I went to do was install Google Chrome.  Unfortunately after opening the chrome deb file in the software center I was greeted with the following message:

Dependency is not satisfiable: libudev0(>=147)

libudev0 has been removed from the 13.04 repositories so until a patch is issued for Chrome you will need to download and install the deb files before installing Chrome.  I imagine that there will be a patch issued for Chrome very soon but in the meantime choose the appropriate file below and install it and then try installing Chrome again.
