Install Google Chrome on Linux (Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora …)

If the installation of the Google Chrome browser is very easy to perform on Windows, the same operation on Linux is equivalent but turns out to be a little more complex when you are not using a usual graphical environment with its wizards. The setup is not automatic and requires a few command line steps to get the internet browser on your Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, OpenSuse, RedHat, CentOS or other equivalent distribution based on DEB and RPM packages.
