    Default Cannot see Google Chrome on repo site. How do I get it?

    I have chromium but apparently need Google Chrome for some of our accountancy work.

    I assumed no problem but cannot see Google Chrome in repo site. Am I looking is wrong place or do I have to download from web?

    Further to this I tried the website download which downloaded an .rpm.
    Tried to install using Yast and this is what I get:-
    Code:
    Error: INVALID:google-chrome-stable-94.0.4606.61-1.x86_64 (file-85675795): Signature verification failed [4-Signatures public key is not available]
         Header V4 DSA/SHA1 Signature, key ID 7fac5991: NOKEY
         Header SHA256 digest: OK
         Header SHA1 digest: OK
         Payload SHA256 digest: OK
         V4 DSA/SHA1 Signature, key ID 7fac5991: NOKEY
         MD5 digest: OK
    Does this mean I have to get public keys from Google?

    Hit the ignore key. It installs fine.

    Google is evil. Try to use Vivaldi or Brave.

    installing the .rpm should also add the google chrome repo to your list and update automatically (if that is what you allowed) in the future

    Why do you need CHROME when you already have CHROMIUM? Aren't they almost 99% the same browser?

    For just browsing yes, but google has crippled some features that were previously available in chromium.
