Install Google Chrome on Fedora 16

One of the worst things about linux distros is that they are still using FireFox as the default browser! Seems the developers are thousand years old or something! The latest browser ranking due to some information gathered in 2011, shows that Google Chrome browser is way more perfect that it’s closest competitor. So I’m going to tutor how we can install this precious browser on linux.

The following tutorial will work on other Fedora versions and it might work on all Redhat family (CentOS and Redhat).

First you should go to the following URL in order to download the appropriate package for your operating system:

https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/?brand=GGRE&hl=en

In the page above, you should click on ” Download Chrome ” button in the middle of the screen.

In this window, you should choose the type of your system which in this case is ” 32 bit .rpm ” or ” 64 bit .rpm ” and you should choose the write one depending on your own OS type

And finally you should click on the ” Accept and Install ” button to accepting the ” Google Chrome Terms of Service ” and the download will begins.

After the download has been completed, you should run the downloaded .rpm file via terminal. I’m using chrome.rpm as the sample name of the file you have downloaded, so you should change this part of code due to the specific file name you have downloaded:

sudo rpm -Uvh chrome.rpm
