Why does Google put users of (at least) Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 at risk by stopping updates for Chrome? While continuing to support Windows XP? How #fail is that? Time to move back to Firefox, I guess.

- I have noticed that in the last week Chrome has stopped telling me that it isn't going to be updated. Maybe I dismissed the warning? Or is it a sign that they have changed their mind?Apr 30, 2013
- I noticed the same thing after the last stable update. Not sure what to make of it and haven't heard anything about it, either.Apr 30, 2013
- Google-chrome-unstable from the repos won't even install/yum update any longer on Rhel6.4 due to new dependencies. C'mon Google, really? If Enterprise is a goal for Chrome, don't leave out the enterprise Linux customers.May 16, 2013
- The message is back again with today's Chrome release 27.0.1453.93 on RHEL6...May 21, 2013
- It seems the deal is with the build toolset. Google uses Ubuntu which uses a newer build tree than what's in RHEL6. The Chromium bug number is 227320 (http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=227320).May 23, 2013
- Red Hat Developer ToolSet 2.0 could be used to build Chrome on RHEL. Google can build any version of their dependencies this way and not be locked into the provided RHEL versions.
Google, it's okay to build dependency packages for the Chrome repo, should a distro need them.May 30, 2013
