Question about slackbuilds.org


I am trying to find chrome using the slackbuilds.org search box and 14.0 version. It returns only chromium as a result.
Does it mean that chrome cannot yet be installed on slackware v14?

If you mean google-chrome, it is also in the /extra directory of your Slackware-mirror or the DVD

Not sure why you'de choose Chrome over Chromium but as indicated it's in /extra in the main distribution.

Chrome is a modified Chromium, basically a build of Chromium customized by Google to their own specifications. For the most part they are the same, and whether the differences matter to the user will vary.

Chrome includes crash reporting built in as well as recorded user metrics (ie. tracking) that are sent to Google. They *can* be disabled but are on by default, as is auto-update, which Chromium does not. The sandbox is also always on in Chrome. Chrome also includes proprietary code modules to support flash, H.264, AAC, MP3 support in HTML5 without the use of plug-ins. It is generally available only as deb or rpm packages and is reportedly a touch slower than Chromium, especially on downloads.
