Chromium ARM

UPDATE 1: A USER CALLED HUEY REPORTED 404 ERRORS DURING INSTALLATION. I HAVE UPDATED SCRIPT TO FIX 404 ERRORS. THANKS HUEY FOR YOUR FEEDBACK!

UPDATE 2: UPDATED TO INSTALL CHROMIUM 55, NOT 53

UPDATE 3: THIS POST IS ONLY FOR PEOPLE WHO CAN’T WAIT TO USE CHROMIUM 55. IF YOU DON’T MIND WAITING THEN USE THE CHROMIUM IN RASPBERRY PI RESPOSITORIES.

UPDATE 4: FIXED YET ANOTHER 404 ERROR.

Hello. Here is an installer that installs latest Chromium onto ARMv7 Linux

Create a new file called install-chromium-arm.sh and put the following into it:

# This script installs latest Chromium onto ARM Linux
