Where did you download Chrome Browser from ?

AFAIAA only Chromium Browser for the RPi 2B ARMv7 Raspbian Jessie can be installed viewtopic.php?f=63&t=121195

I am aanswering my own message.
It was downloaded in my Downloads folder as a *.deb file
so I can install it using dpkg.

Thanks for the reply.

For me i created a bash script that has this

Code: Select all

#! /bin/bash
# This is an awesome site!
xinit /usr/bin/chromium-browser  http://raspberrypi.org
:twisted:
By thinking like an engineer you can create a raspberry pi.

I got the PI model B, B+ and PI 2 model B.
When will I get the A? I don't know.
