Is there a way to install Google Chrome (not Chromium) on FreeBSD? I need to attend a lot of meetings via WebEx which does not seem to work with Firefox and the Cisco WebEx Extension. I thought I could try it with Chrome since that seems to work on my Ubuntu machine. I couldn't find any packages or ports for Chrome.

Thanks!

Google doesn't support FreeBSD directly when it comes to Chrome, they don't offer binary packages fior Chrome like they do for example Ubuntu and other popular Linux distributions. Chrome is a closed source product and to run it you must get it in binary form from Google.

Have you tried changing the user agent to something it is known to support?
Sorry for the delayed response. I did try setting both general.useragent.override and general.useragent.overridepreference to Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/65.0.3325.181 Safari/537.36 but neither worked.
