How to Use Google Chrome on Raspberry Pi 2

Introduction: How to Use Google Chrome on Raspberry Pi 2

About: My name is Bay Yolal, hello everybody!

Today, I am going to show you how to use Google Chrome browser working on Raspberry Pi 2. I read this topic on Raspberry Pi Forums. While you are running your Raspberry Pi 2 with loaded Noobs included Raspbian Jessie, you can write the codes are written on second step onto your Raspbian terminal.

(I tried and it is working well on Raspberry Pi 2 Model B v1.1)

(I tried and it is not working on Raspberry Pi Zero)

(I haven't got other Pi boards to try on each boards, but it is said on the forum that on other boards they are not working with Chrome, yet, maybe soon we will see working)

Step 1: Terminal Codes

wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/87113035/chromium-browser-l10n_48.0.2564.82-0ubuntu0.15.04.1.1193_all.deb
wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/87113035/chromium-browser_48.0.2564.82-0ubuntu0.15.04.1.1193_armhf.deb 
wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/87113035/chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra_48.0.2564.82-0ubuntu0.15.04.1.1193_armhf.deb
sudo dpkg -i chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra_48.0.2564.82-0ubuntu0.15.04.1.1193_armhf.deb
sudo dpkg -i chromium-browser-l10n_48.0.2564.82-0ubuntu0.15.04.1.1193_all.deb chromium-browser_48.0.2564.82-0ubuntu0.15.04.1.1193_armhf.deb
sudo reboot

Step 2: My Notes

When I tried to surf on my website, I saw that Google Chrome is not supporting Webgl automatically, you can see there is no WebGL supportation because it is pinned as unavailable. Furthermore, there are some problems are detected that you can see. So, I couldn't see my WebGL performance with this Chrome on my Raspbian Jessie.

It is a very good thing with this setup that you can see Chrome shortcut on the menu.This is good.

.

That's all !

    Chromium is not the same as Chrome.

    Also:

    apt-get update
    apt-get install chromium chromium-l10n
