Ever needed to download Google Chrome for Linux but from a Windows browser?

Well, if you tried you must have noticed Google forces the download for Windows version. This is because Google selects the Chrome version based on your browser’s User agent.

One way to bypass this automatic browser detection is to specify your platform in the URL itself.

You can specify the platform as linux, windows or mac.

####Command Line

Get the packages on Ubuntu\Linux as follows:

32-bit system:

wget -c
sudo dpkg -i google-chrome-*.deb
sudo apt-get install -f

64-bit system:

wget -c wget
sudo dpkg -i google-chrome-*.deb
sudo apt-get install -f

For openSUSE/Fedora/CentOS packages replace .deb by .rpm and use zypper for installation.
