I want to give the heads up:

Chrome plans to blacklist older NVIDIA proprietary drivers in Linux

If your machine / your customers' machines might be affected by this,
now is the time to do an driver upgrade before we roll out the updated
the blacklist.

I've not had any problem running 275 which is my current nvidia driver version.  the 10.04 and 11.04 PPAs don't even have 295 yet afaik. So you're essentially stopping linux support then.
