I'm instead amazed by Google's arrogance in stating that RHEL 6 is "too old" for Google Chrome. It's been that way since at least last summer, so my RHEL teaching cluster and workstations just don't have chrome installed.
Actually, that's not quite true - one user manged to get Chrome working, but it regularly consumes all system resources and crashes the PC. Result.
All in all, I'm happy to do without Chrome on RHEL 6. Will I try to get it working when I roll out RHEL 7 this summer? Possibly, but moves like this make me wonder if Google's a company whose products I want to install at all. Firefox ESR may have its faults, but it basically works, and I can trust it'll stay working.
