1 Install Chrome on Mac from .DMG file
2 Install Chrome on Mac from Terminal

One of the best known and most used browsers in the world is without a doubt Google Chrome. This browser is made up of a wide set of functions and features that differentiate it from the rest and as such it is available to be used on Windows, Linux, macOS, Android, iOS, etc., which shows us its versatility. Some of the main features of Chrome are:

  • Password check function
  • Improved search bar
  • Easy to sync Chrome across multiple devices where you're signed in
  • Dark mode available
  • Improved tabs feature with new options to use
  • media controls
  • Allows you to use multiple profiles in one session
  • Thousands of plugins available

 

 

In macOS we know that the default browser is Safari, which over time has improved its user experience, but it is still possible that we want to use Chrome in macOS for our search tasks..

 

TechnoWikis will explain two methods to install Chrome on macOS.

2 Install Chrome on Mac from Terminal


For this case we must have HomeBrew installed on macOS, for this it is possible to visit the following link:

 

 Homebrew macOS Monterey

 

HomeBrew is an application with which it is possible to install applications that are not integrated in the system, HomeBrew will install each package in its respective directory using the method of symbolic links to the files in the /usr/local path..

 

Step 1

If you don't have it installed, run in the terminal:
 /bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/HEAD/install.sh)" 
Now we open the macOS terminal:

Step 2

We execute:
 brew install --cask google-chrome 
Or we can use sudo for permission issues:

Step 3

Executing it will start the Brew process:

Step 4

We expect each of these steps to be completed:

step 5

HomeBrew makes use of an internal process of updating and downloading plugins so that everything works as expected:

Step 6

After this, the Chrome download process will start in its stable version from the official site:

step 7

Once downloaded, Chrome will be installed:

step 8

We wait for the process to finish:

step 9

We access Applications:

step 10

We open Google Chrome from there:

step 11

Google Chrome must be verified:

step 12

Then we will see the following message:

step 13

We click Open and now we will have access to Google Chrome:

With any of these methods we can download and install Chrome on macOS and thus have one of the most popular browsers today for web browsing issues.
