I can go into Freya’s Tweaks in Settings to have Close, Minimize, and Maximize appear on the top right of each window, but this does NOT seem to work for Google Chrome. The Close ‘X’ is still appearing on the upper left of the window even after applying the Tweaks settings.
Any way to change this?
Press Ctrl + Shift + Esc to start Task Manager. When Task Manager opens, locate Desktop Windows Manager, right click it and choose End Task.

If you want to have
close buttons on top right of chrome :
Open terminal and run:
gconftool-2 --set /apps/metacity/general/button_layout --type string ":minimize,maximize,close"
Now restart chrome.
sudo apt-get install gconf-editor
configuration-editor --> apps-->metacity--> general, select
button_layout and right click --> Edit Key.
Now add value
Note : If you enable use system title bar and borders It will not work.So make sure that was disabled. I have tested it in freya.
how to rollback?
Now in right side of the window, select
button_layout and right-click select
Now restart chrome.
EDIT: To give clarity
After still close button on left:
After executing command in my answer :
