Chromium web browser

Chromium is the upstream project that Google Chrome browser is based on. Fedora does not include Chromium web browser in the official repository due to problems outlined in

Tom 'spot' Callaway is working with Google to fix the problems in Chromium so that it can be made available in the official repository.

Copr repository

Tom is building Chromium packages using copr, but because of how copr works, he does not currently have full multilib support enabled there. This may cause issues when you try to install Chromium from the Copr. These packages are also unsigned.

If you want to get the full multilib tree with signed packages (notably for libusbx.i686 and libusbx.x86_64), go to and use that repository instead.

Google Chrome

Since Chromium is upstream for Google Chrome, all the same issues apply. In addition to that, Fedora does not include Google Chrome because it is a proprietary product and bundles other proprietary software such as Adobe Flash plugin. However, Google does maintain a yum repository for Fedora at

The link above also includes downloadable RPMs that you may use to install Chrome.
