    Default Google Chrome Issues

    I am running the 64-bit version of OpenSuse 11.3 and the latest Chrome web browser.

    I'm getting these error messages in the console:


    ./google-chrome: /lib64/libz.so.1: no version information available (required by ./google-chrome)

    Perhaps this was life's way of telling me to not use Chrome. I also harbor some privacy concerns about Chrome, so I decided to uninstall it. I am trying out a few other browsers, such as Midori and Iron Linux. Firefox seems to crash too much on my machine and also takes up a lot of resources, so I was looking for an open source browser to replace it. I can also use Konqueror, but found the loading of web pages to be very slow.

    So far I am liking the Iron Linux by SRWare. It's based on the same code base as Chrome, but the project was forked because of the privacy concerns with usage with Chrome. Iron Linux also blocks ads by default. So far I find that it has better performance than the other browsers I've used on Linux, including Firefox, Midori, and Konqueror. This may be of interest to others.

    You can install it from here...
    SRWare.net • Thema anzeigen - New Iron-Version: 14.0.850.0 Stable for Linux

    Then do a tar xvf iron-linux.tar.gz
    Then cd into the iron-linux directory.
    ./iron from the terminal window

    Note: I had to create a symbolic link to /lib64/libbz2.so.1.0

    Also you cannot run iron-linux as root, which is probably a good thing

    Have you tried chromium, as you don't appear to be interested in the extras Google puts into Chrome?

    I tried Chrome but was concerned about the usage tracking. So now I am using Iron Linux, which apparently strips out the usage tracking data sent to Google. It has the exact same interface as Chrome.

    AFAIK chromium doesn't have them in - so they don't need to be stripped out.

    To the OP:
    The Chrome package from Google's repository won't run.

    Only option is to install chromium,
    After removing the mess created by the Google packages,

    Code:
    # zypper install chromium
    HTH,
    Tony
