It is important to note that Google Chrome is not an open-source browser and it may come with certain privacy concerns. If you prefer to use an open-source alternative, you can install Chromium, which is the open-source version of Chrome.

  1. Open a terminal window by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard.
