Since Fedora comes with Firefox as the default internet browser and there is no way to install Chromium by default, I leave you this post on How to Install Chromium in Fedora in a few easy steps.
First of all… What is Chromium?….
this is an open source browser developed by Google (and it’s the base for his Google Chrome).
By default, Chromium can’t be installed by default in fedora due to some issues with packaging…
(check this article: Why Chromium Isn’t in Fedora).
Now, to the steps:
1. Open a terminal window and type:
2. Create a “chromium.repo” file in “/etc/yum.repos.d” using the following command at Terminal
3. In the opened file paste the following code
name=Chromium Test Packagesname=Chromium for Fedora baseurl=http://spot.fedorapeople.org/chromium/F$releasever/baseurl=http://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/spot/chromium/fedora-$releasever/$basearch/ enabled=1 gpgcheck=0
4.Save and close the file and at the terminal type the following command
yum install chromium
This should install Chromium on your Fedora 13. You can find it under Applications > Internet > Chromim Web Browser.
