Just install Chromium, the open-source (FLOSS) counterpart to Chrome. Basically Google develops Chromium, adds some proprietary features (and likely tracking features) to it and distributes it as "Chrome".
So either install Chromium from GNOME software or just sudo dnf install chromium.

Chromium is indeed great as long as you don't need Flash or the Widvine (Netflix) module

this imports the gpg key, much better

Go to:

Click on download choose Fedora 64 o 32 bits download and install the repo then on a terminal

Once you've installed the repo from their web site, you'll also find Chrome in the Software catalog under Internet / Web Browser … or if you search for it by name.

And even outwith doing all this things, you can always find Chromium there. I see no reason for deliberately installing proprietary software here, although the nearly exact same software is available in open-source form. It's also way easier to install, BTW.

@rugk can't watch Netflix on Chromium, no Widevine module

you'll get an error due to no gpg key with this method

There must be a thousands posts (across various distros) of people telling others to use Chromium when they request Chrome. Chrome has two big advantages, the reliable Flash Player integration and the Widevine plugin (DRM with HTML video) to use Netflix, Hulu etc. Netfllix alone has 10's of millions of users.

I've installed the google-chrome-stable-44.0.2403.157-1.x86_64 version. Now all you have to do is to install, via DNF, the file provided by Google. It automatically installs the browser. In my case, DNF requested the installation of other 122 Packages as dependencies. After that, Google Chrome was immediately available in the applications menu ... It works as expected ...

You'll get an error if you don't import the key before installing Chrome and avoiding the key check seems a bit silly, official instructions are here:



 sudo rpm --import


sudo dnf install

follow these steps 1. Change to root user. 2.Enable Google YUM repository 3.Install Google Chrome with YUM 3.1 Install Google Chrome Stable Version 3.2 Install Google Chrome Beta Version 3.3 Install Google Chrome Unstable Version 4. Note for Fedora 28/27/26/25 Wayland users If Yet you do not install the chrome so you can contact Browser Support team and get the guidance step by step.

or you can use 3rd party app tweak like Fedy (Install codecs, software, and more...) and search Google Chrome and than hit install button. Done ^_^

here we go, Fedy - Tweak Your Fedora

for instalation just copy paste and run the following command,

bash -c 'su -c "curl -o fedy-installer && chmod +x fedy-installer && ./fedy-installer"'
