Install Google Chrome on Linux
To install Google Chrome on any Linux operating system, you must download a binary package for your OS from the official Google site and install it manually. You can install Google Chrome in the Ubuntu OS more easily. Make sure your operating system is 64-bit and it won’t work on a 32-bit operating system.
Step 1: Getting Google Chrome
Go to Google Chrome’s download page and click on download. You will receive a prompt that will give you an option to download 64-bit .deb file for Debian/Ubuntu. Select that option and click ‘Accept and Install’. Save the file on your hard drive.
Step 2: Installing .deb file
Your downloaded .deb file should be in your downloaded folder (or whichever folder you chose to save the file in). Double click on that file to run it. This will open Ubuntu’s software centre, which will display an option to install Google Chrome on your device.
Note: If your device is password protected, then you will have to enter your password before you begin the installation.
That’s it! You’re done. It’s as simple as installing a program on macOS or Windows.
