I disabled wrapper and still no go

Any thoughts

going properly

I don't know what/how you have installed but I run chrome (not
chromium) and foxnews video works fine! Flash works out of the box
with it (yes I know chrome is proprietary), and I had to install java
the correct way, but it just works now. Install was via yum after
setting up the google repo and then yum install google-chrome-beta

The method to get java working was essentially:
Download the jre from
http://java.com/en/download/linux_manual.jsp?locale=en&host=java.com:80

Choose 32 or 64 bit version as appropriate

Execute the java install bin file within the directory where you want
to store the java stuff
Make any links necessary:

Now check for the location of jre1.6.0_17/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so

Now
mkdir /opt/google/chrome/plugins

cd /opt/google/chrome/plugins

ln -s /path/to/jre1.6.0_17/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so .

On 64 bit may need to reference lib64 in the jre instead of lib

Restart Chrome and check that java works. This works for me.

The only other additions in chrome I use is to have Adblock and the
RSS extension - and with this setup Foxnews video plays fine in F12.

Hope this helps - it would be really nice if chromium could be made to
work properly with flash and java but I never got it to do so. If
anyone has a "recipe" for installing it and getting it to work with
both flash and java then I would be happy to switch from chrome to
chromium.

Dear All,

Has anybody experienced that the Chrome browser is able to eat all of
memory? I have this issue on both Linux and Win 7 as well. I assume
flash could be the main issue. However, facebook, gmail and g+ eat
more than 100 MByte memory.

It's annoying...

Chrome/Chromium is a memory-hungry app.

Don't use Chrome.

Choose one of the Fedora repositories.

You want probably Chromium.
A quick Google search for 'centos chromium' yields [0] [2] [3].

I don't run Xorg on my CentOS boxes (servers), so I have not tried the
above packages, etc. If you are running Fedora or decide to, I can
vouch for the Chromium packages [1] being stable. I primarily use
Firefox, but also use Chromium on my system a few times a day.

I've been running Chrome from the official Google repo for a long time
now. It's stable, updated frequently, and worked on my prior 32 bit
system as well as my new 64 bit one.

Installing the rpm from http://google.com/chrome installs the necessary
.repo files to keep Chrome up to date.
