As I try to download Google Chrome, I get the following message:

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.google.com. SSL peer rejected a handshake message for unacceptable content. (Error code: ssl_error_illegal_parameter_alert)

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem. Alternatively, use the command found in the help menu to report this broken site.

There is no reason you should not be able to use Firefox to download Chrome or the open source Chromium.

Question owner

After a break, I attempted download again, and fortunately it worked. Therefore, I truly do not know what was wrong last time.

After installing Chrome, I looked at my mail and found both these replies to which I am responding now.

Thanks.
