Chrome no longer supporting RHEL6 (and CentOS-6 and SL6)
As of yesterday, Google pushed Chrome stable v28 into their google-chrome repository and effectively killed RHEL6 support:
--> Running transaction check
---> Package google-chrome-stable.x86_64 0:27.0.1453.110-202711 will be updated
---> Package google-chrome-stable.x86_64 0:28.0.1500.45-205727 will be an update

Error: Package: google-chrome-stable-28.0.1500.45-205727.x86_64 (google)
I was a very happy Google Chrome user and am sad and disappointed that I have to find out this way that Google is only targeting bleeding-edge distributions (and for some time, by coincidence, also enterprise distributions).
If there's a strategy behind it, I would like to know what it is. Force desktop users with a desire to run Chrome into bleeding edge distributions ? Will that help anyone ?
