Update : Sadly, the Google Chrome browser no longer supports the most famous commercial distribution RHEL 6.x 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.

The next step for RHEL/CentOS 6 users to move to RHEL/CentOS 7, the latest Google Chrome works out-of-the-box on RHEL/CentOS 7.

Step 3: Starting Chrome Web Browser

Start browser with non-root user.

    Thank you. I was able to install Chrome 62.0.3202.94 on a new CentOS 7.4 system today, using yum and the repo detailed above. I haven’t checked (probably) everything but I was able to sign in to my Google account and get everything sync’d as far as I can see.

    Ravi Saive:

    Could you help provider the script install_chrome for chrome 58? Because the site (https://chrome.richardlloyd.org.uk/) has been shut down. I just use the chrome 58 for UI automated testing. I can’t upgrade our company sever OS version.

    Thank you very much

    I tried using the script but it fails to get the rpm. I tried manually downloading the rpm and installing it, but yum complains that I need newer libraries (and yes, it looks like the script DID install updates to those).
