I want to download chrome browser version 51 or below through terminal; however the latest version is 58.

Linux: centOS


Took a little digging, but just pieced this together:

yum install -y https://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/x86_64/google-chrome-stable-${GOOGLE_CHROME_VERSION}-1.x86_64.rpm

You can extract available versions from the following URL: https://www.ubuntuupdates.org/package/google_chrome/stable/main/base/google-chrome-stable

    After searching for 1 hour, this one finally worked. Thanks, mate.

You should search a downloadable link for that version and use wget and yum or dpkg to install.. One source I found is here but they don't have the CentOs version.

The official and current version can be found here :

wget https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_x86_64.rpm
yum localinstall google-chrome-stable_current_x86_64.rpm

    This only gives the current version. The question asks how to get any version. Jun 20 '17 at 22:29

Download Google Chrome

wget http://orion.lcg.ufrj.br/RPMS/myrpms/google/google-chrome-stable-51.0.2704.106-1.x86_64.rpm


rpm -ivh google-chrome-stable-51.0.2704.106-1.x86_64.rpm
  • This is just as random as "find the software version you want, download it and install through package management"... It applies to Windows as well

  • @user34720 I got a sha256sum on one of versions provided there (87.0.4280.88), and compared it against Google's official RPM. They were the same. No worries (at least on this version). Apr 19 '21 at 10:31
  • Go to the link shared below. Find and download the rpm file for the specific google chrome version. You can use wget to download it. Just copy the download link URL and pass it as an argument to the wget command.


  • Then use yum to install google chrome from that local rpm file.

yum localinstall google-chrome-stable_current_x86_64.rpm

  • Unfortunately, new versions does not appear to be added for a while. Nov 13 '19 at 20:37
