The new Fedora update is impressive, and we recommend that every Fedora user upgrade their Fedora 30 to Fedora 31 for the best performance and better battery life (for laptop users).
Fedora comes with Firefox as the default web browser. If you prefer Google Chrome, we’ve got this tested guide to show you a few ways. The first process shows installing Chrome from the Fedora repository, and the next one suggests downloading the Chrome app from Google servers.
With the latter process, you get Chrome’s latest version that isn’t thoroughly tested by the Fedora community. People wanting a stable and fairly tested Chrome should use the first method to install Chrome from the official Fedora repository. However, you can still install the beta/unstable version using the first method, too, as shown below.
But before we start with Google Chrome installation, you should make sure that your system is completely updated using the following two commands. Fire up the Terminal app and enter the commands one at a time.
sudo dnf update sudo dnf upgrade

Step 6. For the first time starting the Google Chrome browser, you should get a message like the below one. Click the Ok button to launch Google Chrome.
