Hi all,

Just recently I started getting the dreaded message about my CentOS 6.7 
x64-installation wasn't going to be supported anymore by Google Chrome.

"This computer will soon stop receiving Google Chrome updates because this 
Linux system will no longer be supported."

Doing some google searches I found this;

Which in itself wasn't too uplifting...
Following the suggestion about installing Chromium instead worked, but it 
seems to be stuck at an ancient version of the browser.

Recompiling the available Chromium source is of course an option, but not for 
Not unless there are step-by-step guides doing it.

There was a rather long and somewhat heated discussion regarding Chrome on 
CentOS a while ago.
Was there any real conclusion about Google Chrome on CentOS and how to get 
around this problem?
Are the views on this matter still infected?

I'm not looking forward to go back to the sluggish Firefox. 8-/
