Google Chrome on Fedora

Given my recent frustration with Firefox, I wanted to install another web browser.

It doesn’t appear that either Google Chrome or chromium are available in the standard Fedora repository. You can add a repository to get Chromium or Chrome.

I don’t know how that effects tools like yum. Maybe I’ll see if it looks like yum is now aware of Chrome.
