I found the only one dependency required by Google Chrome –

Google Chrome version 46.0 can be successfully installed on CentOS 6.7 (64-bit) by following steps:

1. download libstdc++47-4.7.0-16.1.x86_64.rpm from ftp://ftp.pbone.net/mirror/ftp5.gwdg.de … x86_64.rpm

http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat/4/idpl/23796004/dir/centos_5/com/libstdc++47-4.7.0-16.1.x86_64.rpm.html

2. download google-chrome-stable from http://www.gooogle.com/chrome

https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_x86_64.rpm

3. install the dependency

rpm -ivh libstdc++47-4.7.0-16.1.x86_64.rpm

# wget http://chrome.richardlloyd.org.uk/install_chrome.sh

# chmod u+x install_chrome.sh

# ./install_chrome.sh

Start browser

# google-chrome &d

You can install it on any Linux including CentOS, RHEL, and OEL Linux.

Find out if your Linux is a 32bit or 64 bit

$ uname -m

x86_64

Open the Terminal application. Grab 64bit Google Chrome

# wget https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_x86_64.rpm

# sudo yum install ./google-chrome-stable_current_*.rpm

# google-chrome &
