Google Chrome Update Keeps Appearing Even After Removing From Application Sources

I use Google Chrome -unstable as my primary browser and am very happy with it. But one problem I keep facing is it asks me to update the daily build each day. Removing it from /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list doesn't help.
So if you also don't want to install the daily build each and every day follow the following steps:

  1. Remove the google-chrome apt list from /etc/apt/sources.list
  2. Remove the google-chrome.list file from /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list
  3. Remove the file /etc/default/google-chrome
This should prevent Google Chrome daily updates.

P.S. If by change you landed here and don't have Google chrome and want to install it get the daily build from here or the deb package from here(32 bit) or here(64 bit).
