Actually, that's not accurate... "Chrome" installs just fine using 
Richard Lloyd's install_chrome.sh script.

The script from http://chrome.richardlloyd.org.uk/ downloads that 
package from a fedora 15 repo (getting it from fedora 16 or newer causes 
other errors/crashes), segregates it in /opt/google/chrome/lib so all 
other programs use the package from the CentOS repo, installs the 
Google-Chrome repo, fetches the latest stable release Chrome rpm and 
installs Chrome.

 From then on, yum should install updates from the Google-Chrome repo 
(at least that's how it's done it for me since I used an early version 
of it to install v28 on CentOS 6.4 after I saw his post in 
https://www.centos.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=6570 and yum's updated 
Chrome for me at least 6 times since then).

i.e. You've confused "Chrome" with "chromium"

As I recall, the Chrome rpm downloaded from Google's repo would fail to 
install with yum complaining about a new enough libstdc++ file not being 
I can't find on http://gcc.gnu.org/libstdc++/ what the difference is 
between the GLIBCXX_3.4.15 string offered by fedora15 and the older 
(GLIBCXX_3.4.12? GLIBCXX_3.4.13?) versions offered by CentOS 6.5, and 
don't understand why a minor revision like that would/could NOT be 
updated without waiting for RH/CentOS 7.x.
But, then... I'm just a dumb electrician.  :)
