Chrome is not possible, but Firefox is ;)

Try going to the Firefox website instead of searching in the software center.

Google Chrome Browser is not available for Raspbian Stretch, but Firefox 57 ESR is:

Code: Select all

sudo apt update
sudo apt install firefox-esr

Installing was no problem, bud that is Firefox esr.
That does not work also.
The only that works is chrome, firefox and safari.
Shame becourse i bought the rasp for that, it was debian based and on my zorin laptop i'm running Chrome.
So i bought a cat in a bag.
Thanks for the help anyway.

There is Linux x86 for you Laptop.

There is Linux ARMHF for Single Board Computers with ARM CPU.

Google decided not to offer Chrome Browser, except for the Android OS, on devices with ARM CPU.

That be said it should be feasible to install an older non ESR Firefox Browser:

At the cost of emulating x86 on the Pi's ARM processor (*).

The conventional wisdom on this board is that this is way too slow to be usable, but the fact is that the Pi's keep getting more powerful (and power hungry) - to the point where it should, someday be feasible to do this. Maybe the new 3B+ actually has enough horsepower for it to work. Maybe.

(*) Yes, I know it's not emulating Windows, but it is still emulating x86.
