Google Chrome is the most popular open source web browser developed by Google. It runs on Linux, Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android. In this post, we will show you how to easily install Google Chrome on CentOS / Fedora Linux. This is the same process used to install Google Chrome on CentOS 8 / RHEL 8 Linux distribution.

Google Chrome is not available in the CentOS/Fedora upstream repositories and should be downloaded from the official Google Chrome download page and installed manually.

We will download the RPM release of Google Chrome and use dnf or yum package manager to install it. You need to have wget installed on your CentOS/RHEL system to use for the download.

sudo yum -y install wget
wget https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_x86_64.rpm

Navigate to the directory with the downloaded package and execute:

sudo yum localinstall google-chrome-stable_current_x86_64.rpm

Press “y” to accept Google Chrome installation on Fedora / CentOS workstation. To launch Chrome, use Gnome activities menu to search for Google Chrome and Launch it.

Alternatively, launch it from the terminal.

$ google-chrome
