How can I install Google Chrome on OpenBSD?

Chrome has been in OpenBSD's ports tree since at least OpenBSD 4.8.

$ sudo pkg_add chromium

Should do the trick, assuming your PKG_PATH environment variable is properly set.

For more information on ports/packages, see here: OpenBSD Packages and Ports System

Any known issues with Chrome? do you happen to know if it works with AwesomeWM? – Justin Apr 7 '11 at 19:25
@Justin: No major issues while I've been using it. I don't know if it works with AwesomeWM... I use cwm, and it works fine there. – gabe. Apr 7 '11 at 22:20
@gabe.: Does plucking tabs out of a window and back again work four you in cwm? They don't want to snap back in for me. – Matej Apr 26 at 14:26
