Jesse -- no browser

Sun Jan 14, 2018 5:36 pm

I have version 8 Jesse and started the default browser (safari?), tried to open a Gmail message and couldn't download something. Then noted a statement saying browser no longer supported?

So then -- figured I would try Chromium, so installed it and when i try to open Chromium, the spinner just runs and nothing happens.

Any help please? Need to make this simple -- work to do -- what browser do I need to install?

Confused as recent releases of both Raspbian Jessie and Stretch have chromium-browser as the de-facto default.
The information is out there....you just have to let it in.

My other Linux machines are a ChromeBox & Intel CoreDuo Desktop

Well I did a sudo update and upgrade this morning -- so maybe that's it. Actually don't know what version of Raspian I had before. Does upgrade update the os?

It says I now have Version 8 Jessie. Maybe I'll try to uninstall and reinstall Chromium? I'll try it from the command line this time.
