Unofficial build of Google Chrome Stable 50 forwarded to local X session.
Full Description

Google Chrome

Unofficial build of Google Chrome 50 running within a docker container and
rendered by the local X Server.


* Vol mount /dev/shm to enable latest versions of Chrome that require more
  shared memory.

* User permissions now correlate between host and container. This allows
  Google-Chrome downloads to be saved back to the host system by passing
  in the local users uid/gid as environment variables.

* Added audio passthrough, however this requires the --privileged argument
  to be set. This can be replaced with --device:/dev/snd in Docker 1.7.

* Additional configuration files can now be mounted inside the container
  (see example below).

* Additional environment variables can now be passed into the container for
  additional ARGS and URL. For example:
  -e ARGS=--proxy-pac-url='<Insert URL HERE>' -e URL=
