Installing Chrome on CentOS 6.X

I tried installing the Chrome browser in CentOS by simplying downloading the provided rpm by Google.Unfortunaltely I came to know that Google no longer supports the most popular commercial Linux (Red Hat Enterprise Linux) and its free equivalents CentOs and Scientific Linux.

Fortunately for us Richard Lloyd says, Chrome Browser can be sucessfully installed on CentOS 6.4 and latter by grabbing the libraries from a more recent Linux Distro and by putting them in /opt/google/chrome/lib. These libraries are what Google Chrome look for and now that they are there, Chrome can run of CentOS 6.4+

Here is the script he wrote to do so:

Here is the code you can run to install Google Chrome in your CentOS machine:

# wget
# chmod u+x
# ./
