Google Chrome - Install on RHEL/CentOS 6

Create a file called /etc/yum.repos.d/google-chrome.repo and add the following lines of code to it.


Installing Chrome Web Browser

# yum install google-chrome-stable
Update : Sadly, the Google Chrome browser no longer supports the most famous commercial distribution Red Hat and its free clones such as CentOS and Scientific Linux.
Yes, they’ve discontinued support for RHEL 6.X version as of Google Chrome and on other side, latest Firefox and Opera browsers run successfully on the same platforms.
Luckily, there is a script developed by Richard Lloyd, that automatically download and install latest Google Chrome browser by picking libraries from a more recent released distro and put those libraries in (/opt/google/chrome/lib) directory and then you can able to runGoogle Chrome on CentOS 6.X version.
# wget
# chmod u+x
# ./
Starting Chrome Web Browser
