Raspberry Pi LESSON 34: Installing Google Chrome on the Raspberry Pi

There is a version of Google Chrome that will run on the Raspberry Pi. I think it is much better than the default browser that comes on the Pi. The key is that the linux version on the Google Chrome download page will not run on the Pi. To get the version that does work, go to the terminal window and at the Linux command line on your Pi and type:

$ sudo apt-get install chromium-bsu

This will take a few minutes but it will install the browser. To find it once you have it installed, look under the menu button, and in the “internet” selection, and you should see “Chromium”. If you right click on it, you can then choose to have it show up on your desktop.

Play around with it, I think it is the best browser for the Pi.
