I tried to install chromium with this command:

sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

But I got an error that the package is not available.

Can you please help me to download chromium?

    Raspbian Jessie dropped the Chromium dependency. You can install it by following this guide – Brian Feb 14 '16 at 19:40

I found I had to manually fetch and install the packages. The link the commentor provided didn't quite work for me. I ended up with the following script:


#Install Chromium Browser

wget https://www.dropbox.com/s/emv1akq9lm4gi3c/chromium-browser-l10n_50.0.2661.102-0ubuntu0.
wget https://www.dropbox.com/s/12ht1lgpossgq0q/chromium-browser_50.0.2661.102-0ubuntu0.
wget https://www.dropbox.com/s/041d46qhi9yhla7/chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra_50.0.2661.102-0ubuntu0.
sudo dpkg -i chromium-browser_50.0.2661.102-0ubuntu0.
sudo dpkg -i chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra_50.0.2661.102-0ubuntu0.
sudo dpkg -i chromium-browser-l10n_50.0.2661.102-0ubuntu0.
