Needed to remind myself how to do this, and it occurred to me I should post on it.
I’ve bounced back and forth between Chromium and Chrome for awhile. Although I like the idea of a completely open source Chromium, as a user (and sometime developer) Google’s release version of Chrome is just more useful to me.
Thanks to JR for his Install Google Chrome on Fedora 20/19, CentOS/RHEL 7 that describes the steps below.
1. Create the file /etc/yum.repos.d/google-chrome.repo:
[google-chrome] name=google-chrome - \$basearch baseurl=http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/\$basearch enabled=1 gpgcheck=1 gpgkey=https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub
2. Install using yum:
yum install chrome-browser-stable
(be sure to answer “Y” when prompted to accept Google’s GPG key)
