What works

Chrome 49.0.2623.75 installs and "runs", but that's pretty much it.

What does not

Nothing works at all, it is completely broken. No pages load and you can't even view the browser version.


What was not tested

I did not try any Wine-level workarounds. I only tested vanilla Wine with clean Chrome installations.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary
