When using TAILS, I sometimes need to open things in a non-tor browser to get them to open/ work. I downloaded chrome and have the .exe file, but don't know what to do with it after it downloads to my tails downloads. I am not a linux aficianado. But I imagine it is not too difficult.


  • I would like to know how to do that

Have you tried using the unsafe browser under the Internet tab of applications? It will work just like a normal firefox/iceweasel brower.


There's no use for dot-exe file in Linux - unless you're trying to perform a difficult emulation setup. If you're not a Linux pro - install Virtualbox from your distro's repository and run the browser inside the VM routed through Tor to properly isolate it. If you need help in setting it up - just say it, and we will do it
