MetaMask was recently announced and will be faster than Mist (mentioned in other answer) since MetaMask is a Chrome extension and does not use a local copy of the blockchain.

This video is 3 minutes long, but you have all that you need to get an Ethereum address in the first minute:


Make sure to keep the 12 words secure and have backups of it. (Also switch to the "main network" if you want to send and receive real Ether.)

Finally, it would still be a good idea to read and familiarize yourself with the "Account Management" and other sections http://ethdocs.org.
