I'd start by installing Chromium from the Software Manager, so you will have a browser, so you can do a web search for 'download Google Chrome'. Then you can download the .deb file and install from that (by doubleclicking it).
This is why my grandma always said that I should not throw my old shoes away before I had a new pair. :wink:

If your issue is solved, kindly indicate that by editing the first post in the topic, and adding [SOLVED] to the title. Thanks!

You can also install Firefox, Opera or Midori browser from Software Manager.

Don't install Opera from the software manager... it's grossly outdated. The Manager gives you version 12, they're on version 49 now.
