This has not been compiled on tinycore - did you compile it yourself on a different distro or is it a precompiled binary?

Note also, ref "Requirements:" please do not add row headings to the extension info file.

I'm afraid that Google Chrome browser is available only as precompiled binary and it may have proptiary code like h.204 codec.

Yes, but it works on TCL11.x normally.

Does the license allow distribution?

I'm not sure, because there are no such restrictions in our country, and we never have to worry about these problems, especially copyright issues.
I think it should allow free use and distribution (as long as it is not decompiled), CentOS, PCLinuxOS and other distributions provide Google Chrome for use.

According to Wikipedia, Google Chrome is proprietary freeware. Here is the link to the licence.
