    the contrib repo and it would Chromium as it the open source version openSUSE:Contrib - openSUSE

    there are some official Google repos for Chrome but iirc Chromium is actually more featured (don't recall differences or why)
    openSUSE Leap 42.1 x64, Plasma 5 & KDE 4.14.x, pretty current proprietary Nvidia drivers (self-compiled)

    sorry of bringing back this old topic.
    i am also looking for a valid adress for google chrome. i remember, back in february when i first installed chrome, it added an adress by itself. the same things happening in ubuntu: it adds a adress in software source.
    it is not the case today in opensuse. the only way to update is to check online for the chrome version, download the .rpm and install it manually.

    For anyone that may look into this thread, like I did:
    starting this month, March 2016, Google gave up their 32 bit Chrome for linux, so the old repository https://dl.google.com/linux/rpm/stable/i386 does no longer work, and thus no more updates.

    Though, the 64 bit variant of the same repository is OK: https://dl.google.com/linux/rpm/stable/x86_64

    Which is a good thing actually, 64 bit version works better anyway :-)

    But that link doesn't work, and hasn't worked for a bit more than a week now. I don't know what's happening over at google, but they're letting us down somewhat. I've had to disable that repo as it lengthens the time it takes to do my updates (waiting for the timeout which does happen every time for both the zypper ref and the zypper up). Clicking on your link for 64bit gets me (eventually)

    This webpage is not available

    ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT
    which is normal as we aren't supposed to access that location through the browser.

    If I do a
    Code:
    zypper ref;zypper up
    , I get a
    Timeout exceeded when accessing 'http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml'.
