A .zip file is an archive, so you can't install it, but can unzip or extract it - right click, select 'Extract here'. Call it installation if you like, but that's pretty much it. If you prefer the terminal way, then:

unzip chrome-linux.zip -d /destination_dir

To run it cd to the installation directory, and then run ./chrome

Needless to say, I'd strongly discourage using any unofficial version of Chrome. It could be unsafe, and your best bet is to get the real thing instead.
