Installing Google Chrome Browser

This page discusses third-party software sources not officially affiliated with or endorsed by the Fedora Project. Use them at your own discretion. Fedora recommends the use of free and open source software and avoidance of software encumbered by patents.

Fedora Workstation, in its out of the box configuration, only includes free and open source software. Mozilla Firefox is the browser included in Fedora Workstation by default. However, it easy to install either Google Chrome or Chromium, if preferred.

Google Chrome

Google Chrome is a popular web browser developed by Google. Chrome is built on top of the open-source browser project, Chromium. Chrome includes additional features such as support for proprietary media files (such as H.264 or AAC) and playback of rights-protected media (Netflix, etc.) Chrome also includes support for other Google services such as browser sync and location services, which are not supported by Chromium.

Google Chrome is available in Fedora Workstation via a curated third-party repository. Once this repository is enabled, Chrome can be installed via Software or the command line.

Installing Chrome using Terminal
The additional repositories can also be managed using a terminal and DNF.

Install Third Party Repositories

$ sudo dnf install fedora-workstation-repositories
Enable the Google Chrome repo:

$ sudo dnf config-manager –set-enabled google-chrome
Finally, install Chrome:

$ sudo dnf install google-chrome-stable
