Firefox is the default web browser on Debian and Debian-based Kali Linux. However, this does not preclude the installation of other web browsers.
Google Chrome is extremely popular and you most likely already have it installed on your computer. If you want to install Chrome on Debian, you can do it without any hassle.
Because Google Chrome is not open source software, it is not available in the Debian repositories. However, you can download and install it from the Chrome website.
In this tutorial, I will show you two methods to install Chrome on Debian:
Let’s start with the GUI method first.
This is obvious. Go to the Google Chrome website, download the deb file, and double-click it to install. I am going to show you the steps in detail so that it is easy for you to follow.
Go to the Google Chrome website.
You will see the option to download Google Chrome.
When you click the download button, it gives you two options to download the installation file. Go with the one that says Debian / Ubuntu.
Please note that Google Chrome is NOT available for 32-bit systems.
On the next screen, you have to choose to save the file to the computer instead of opening it in the software center for installation. This way, the downloaded file will be saved in the Downloads folder instead of the temporary directory.
Go to the download folders and right click on the downloaded deb file and choose to open it with the software installation.
Then it will open the software center and you should see the option to install Chrome now. Click on the install button.
You will be asked to enter your account password. This is the same password that you use to log into your system.
In less than a minute, Google Chrome will be installed. You should see a removal option now indicating that the software is installed.
Once Chrome is installed on Debian, find it in the system menu and launch it.
It will ask you to be your default browser and submit crash reports to Google. You can uncheck one or both options. And then you can see the Google Chrome browser window.
If you log into your Google account, you should be able to sync your passwords, bookmarks, and other browsing data here. Enjoy it!
Another thing, after installing Chrome, you can delete the downloaded DEB file from your system. It is no longer necessary, not even to uninstall Chrome.
What you just saw above can be easily accomplished in the terminal.
First, make sure your package cache is up to date and that you have installed wget to download files from the web in the terminal.
sudo apt update && sudo apt install wget
The next option is to download the .deb file from Google Chrome:
Once downloaded, you can install the deb file in the terminal with the apt command like this:
sudo apt install ./google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb
Once the installation is complete, you can start using Chrome.
Both methods add the Google repository to your system. You can see it in your sources.lis.d directory:
cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list
This means that Google Chrome will be updated with other system updates on Debian and Kali Linux. Do you know how to update your Kali Linux or Debian system on the command line? Just use this command:
sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y
Even if you choose to install Chrome on Debian using the GUI method, you will have to use the terminal to remove it.
Do not worry. It’s really just a command:
sudo apt purge google-chrome-stable
Enter your account password when prompted. Nothing is displayed on the screen when you type the password. It’s fine. Write it down and hit enter and confirm the deletion.
Well that’s it. Hope this tutorial is helpful to you.
