For those of you Fedora users out there who are Google Chrome fans, I'mma show you how to install Chrome.

Step 1: Add the Repo.

Before you install Chrome, you'll have to add the repo first, so pull up a terminal window and go in as root, and type in the following, and then running yum update would help too:

wget https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub

rpm --import linux_signing_key.pub

sh -c 'echo "[google-chrome]
name=Google Chrome 32-bit
baseurl=http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/i386" >> /etc/yum.repos.d/google-chrome.repo'

yum update

*If you're running Fedora 64-bit, type x86_64 instead of i386.




Step 2: Install the Browser

Now to install the browser, so while still in the terminal, type in either of the following commands, depending on which version of Chrome you wanna install. I installed the unstable version.

yum install google-chrome-stable

yum install google-chrome-beta

yum install google-chrome-unstable

Step 3: Enjoy Your Browser

Now I'm more of a Firefox fan, but Google Chrome is still a pretty solid contender in the browser world.
