Opera browser for Android (via official Google Play website)

What is that? It is Opera browser, not Chromium browser. :/

Yes, I know. There is absolutely no Chromium stable version for Android. And Opera for Android is based on Chromium. So, I recommend to use Opera because it uses less RAM than Google Chrome and it is an excellent mobile browser.

Chromium on iOS is a big fake!

Check the official build instructions to understand that Chromium cannot use the existing content/implementation, which is based on V8/Blink and is multiprocess. Go your way! ^^


Obviously, you know that this site is not the Chromium official website. I created it because I did not find a simple way to download good releases of Chromium. I try to keep it as safe (only official links used) and fast as possible! ;)

Chromium exists since 2008. It is the free and open-source project (mainly under BSD licence) behind the famous Google Chrome browser... and other web browsers. Intrinsically, Chromium is a Google project.

In fact, Chromium does not have a stable release. It is continually in development. Google Chrome is the stable release... but is not open-source.

However, because Chromium is open-source, anyone can build it. You must be a developer to do this. Just get a good version from the official SVN Google directory and build it! Example with the latest "stable" version of Chromium (used by Google too!) = Chrome! ^^ Add new features, correct few bugs... Now, you understand why there are stable Chromium versions on this website.

Go back to development... Basically, Chromium has few versions every day, but you can stick with a version for about a month before you need to upgrade.

Snapshots builds are compiles of the Chromium code whenever there are submitted code changes. A snapshot build will be created as long as the code compiles successfully. Each snapshot build is then run through the automated tests (both unit tests and layout tests). If that snapshot build successfully passes the automated tests, it is copied to Continuous builds.

In resume:

So, I give you the opportunity to download only nice releases of Chromium !
Latest best releases are available on → download/

Moreover, you will not find builds (with "failure" or other bad result) like this one on this website. I exclude them.

This entire website (news and #api included) is auto-updated every 2 hours by the server itself.

Thanks for your attention.
Have a good time! ;)


Chromium vs Google Chrome

Chromium browser has:
  • only open-source licenses (BSD license, MIT license, LGPL, MS-PL and MPL/GPL/LGPL tri-licensed code) plus unlicensed files
  • a blue-colored logo
  • no stable version offered by the Google team (aka The Chromium Authors)
  • no auto-update system (Solutions: Use PPA on #linux • Sometimes it is integrated like in FreeSMUG build on #mac • Use an auto-updater add-on on #windows)
  • no print preview
  • no built-in PDF reader (Solutions: Get plugin from Google Chrome • Install PDF Viewer or Google PDF/PowerPoint Viewer add-on • Use a free external PDF viewer like Sumatra PDF or Foxit Reader on #windows)
  • no built-in Flash player (Solutions: Get plugin from Google Chrome • Use Adobe Flash Player)
  • no support of AAC and MP3 media codecs by the HTML <audio> and <video> tags
  • no user RLZ tracking
  • no user metrics (usage statistics) (opt-in option)
  • no crash report (opt-in option)
  • More details

More information about Google Chrome plugins

Some developers maintain forks of Chromium that offer more features. Thanks a lot for developers! ;)

Free online HTML5 test: Compare your browser to Google Chrome

And if you want to follow new features in Chromium, check Google+ posts of an official Chromium developer


1. Internal pages

To access to all internal pages, use chrome://about. Copy and paste this special URL directly into the address bar (omnibox).
Obviously, this special URL works only in Chromium and Google Chrome.

Few internal pages:
Note: About configuration settings, there is nothing similar to Firefox's about:config in Chromium.

Example: How to clear DNS cache?
Open chrome://net-internals/#dns and click on Clear host cache button.

2. Keyboard shortcuts

To use keyboard shortcuts (on Windows, Mac and Linux), check this full list of official shortcuts... and this one if you are developer. Most of the shortcuts are similar to IE, Firefox or any other browser.

3. User data directory

About your bookmarks, profile... it is important to know where is stored your user data if you have deleted it inadvertently or encountered a browser bug.

4. Command line flags

There are command line flags (or "switches") that Chromium and Google Chrome accept in order to enable particular features or modify otherwise default functionality. Check the official page explaining how to use these flags. See the auto-updated big list of current command line flags.

Example: How to start Chromium directly in incognito (or private) mode, on Windows?
Add --incognito flag at the end of the Chromium shortcut.
"C:\{...}\Chromium\Application\chrome.exe" --incognito

5. External extension installation

You can get .crx files directly from Google Chrome Web Store via an online tool or an add-on
Open chrome://extensions and drag-and-drop your .crx file into the page. If it does not work, unzip your .crx file. Then drag-and-drop the unzipped folder into the page.

6. Source code

Before all, check the official guide for developers

Official links to easily get or see the Chromium source code:
Few interesting information:


This is a free and simple API for developers to update Chromium to the latest good build via a bash (shell) script, an add-on... Please, do not use this API in other websites! #Read notes...

GET request parameters:
  • os(required) windows or mac or android
  • bit(optional • 32 by default) 32 or 64
  • out(optional • json by default) json or string or xml or revision

This is my personal recommendation for desktop and mobile web browsers.

Open-source browsers:
  • Chromium (Continually in development, it can be unstable. Do not use it as your primary browser)
  • Firefox (Modular browser with its famous extensions system and its powerful settings)
  • Midori (It uses the WebKit rendering engine and the GTK+ 2 or GTK+ 3 interface)
  • QupZilla (It is multi-platform and uses the WebKit rendering engine)
  • Pale Moon (Windows-only optimized browser based on Firefox)
  • Tor Browser Bundle (Based on Firefox's layout engine • Use Tor, an anonymity network)
  • or all other open-source browser, in general

Proprietary browsers:
  • Opera (Now based on Chromium • Opera team has created some functionalities like tabs, speed-dial... now in all browsers • It exists since 1994)
  • Google Chrome (Based on Chromium • Google is the official hoster of Chromium project)
  • Dolphin (Mobile browser for Android and iOS)
  • Safari on Mac

I do not recommend:
Why not recommended?
Because all of these browsers are closed-source and based on Chromium like Google Chrome and Opera! ^^ and you can do it all by yourself. #Read privacy...

Moreover, InsanityBit explains this very well on his blog: SRWare Iron Browser – A private alternative to Chrome? (Archives: 1, 2)

Finally, if a new browser with "better privacy" than Google Chrome is based on Chromium and is fully open-source, it should be ok for me! ;) Maybe Superbird Browser? Actually, there are not enough reviews and feedbacks.


For a better privacy protection, use an open-source #browser like Chromium or Firefox. Do not forget: It is open-source does not mean it is secure. But, if your browser is fully "open-source", it means that somebody with the capability can review it. With versioning tools like SVN or Git, it is easy for developers to find malicious code. This is better for user privacy! ^^

- Update your browser fairly frequently. The reason for updating to the latest version is security. As security threats are found, they are fixed. Using an old version may expose you to a number of security issues. Browsers are far more subject to hacking than other softwares.
- Enable incognito (or private) mode (Use #flag to start Chromium in incognito mode)
- Do not save passwords in browser (Prefer a dedicated password manager like KeePass or LastPass)
- Enable/disable Do Not Track (This option exists only for fun because most of sites does not respect it. So, enable or disable it means same thing)
- Disable the web service to help resolve navigation errors
- Disable the prediction service to help complete searches and URLs typed in the address bar
- About PDF reader and Flash player, check links in #features
- Enable Click to play plugins (Settings → Show advanced settings → Privacy → Content settings → Plug-ins → Click to play)
- Choose a search engine wich respect your privacy: - Add few extensions: - Use Tor, a VPN or an anonymous proxy

Just a last thing: If you disable sandbox in Chromium (with --no-sandbox flag), the Google team says to use another browser like Firefox because Chromium without sandbox is very vulnerable and insecure. This setting must be used only by developers.

Amazing website! Thanks. Can you share an API?

12 July 2013 by anonymous3
Just what I was looking for! Keep up the good work!

13 July 2013 by Woolyss
@anonymous3, Thank you very much!

@anonymous2, I can do a simple API to get Chromium datas (in JSON) for Windows because there is no stable binary version available. I can give you only good build. It will be the same result as #windows.

14 July 2013 by anonymous5
You should start posting the 64 bit Windows builds!

15 July 2013 by Woolyss
[EDIT: Content updated by Woolyss • 28 February 2014]

Yes @anonymous5 ! Thanks, it is a good idea! But... Chromium 64-bit on Windows and Mac are experimental!

Officially, Google Chrome 64-bit on Windows and Mac do not exist too!
Check the development channel : http://www.chromium.org/getting-involved/dev-channel

Google team wrote:
"Neither Chromium nor V8 has a 64-bit version on the Windows platform right now. However, Chrome does run on 64-bit Windows as a 32-bit application. V8 should only need a small number of changes to build on the Windows platform."
http://www.chromium.org/developers/design-documents/64-bit-support (Content edited by the Google team in February 2014, but there is a copy on https://archive.is/mT07)

"The problem: Chrome runs as a 32-bit process on 64-bit Windows systems. [...] The plugins are still 32-bit libraries."
http://www.chromium.org/nativeclient/design-documents/native-client-in-chrome-on-64-bit-windows (Content deleted by the Google team in February 2014, but this issue talk about that: https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=28176)

So, there will be many bugs with plugins (Pepper/Adobe Flash player) and extensions (from Google Chrome Web Store) because plugins and extensions are mainly in 32-bit.

...and there:
"The sandbox is designed for 32-bit processes"

Officially, only Linux versions are available in 64-bit. The Pepper/Adobe Flash player for Linux exists in 64-bit.

About Windows... (revision 211418):

In the Win_x64 repository, Chromium's executable is in 64-bit. But most internal processes are in 32-bit.

Work is underway. To follow progress of Chromium 64-bit:
- on Windows: https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=8606
- on Mac: https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=18323

I tell you: Chromium 64-bit on Windows and Mac are less stable than the 32-bit version.

And why there is no Google Chrome 64-bit on Windows and Mac actually?
You know, I am not a specialist. The Google team works on Chromium 64-bit for Windows, Mac... since 2009 (Just check links above!). I think that Google wait for the moment to offer its own browser (Google Chrome) in 64-bit. It will depend on its strategy with ChromeOS. When Google will need more than 4GB RAM for its products (ChromeOS especially), Google Chrome (and Chromium obviously) will go 64-bit with little debate. Note that a 64-bit version will lead to a significant increase in memory usage. If you have got a better idea, please tell me! ;)

Just for your information:
- Chromium on #windows-64-bit
- Chromium on #mac-64-bit

Chromium advised me when I opened it that there was an update to Version 28.0.1500.71 (209842) so I installed it. Now all my bookmarks are gone! That never happened before. Are you sure this is stable? Am I going to have to rebuild my bookmarks? It looks like History is still intact. I am running Mac OS X 10.6.8.

24 July 2013 by Woolyss
@GrandmaDragon, On Mac and Linux, I am sure that Chromium is stable. I use it.
And... Google Chrome use this release, too.

You can compare your version with the Google's official releases on http://dev.chromium.org/developers/calendar
Check: os→mac, channel→stable, current_version→28.0.1500.71, branch_revision→209842.

Actually, you are using the stable version.

About your bookmarks, it is probably a bug! :/
Did you try to restore your bookmarks ?

24 July 2013 by GrandmaDragon
I went where it said in the data-directory page and all that is there for bookmarks is the two I have restored this morning. I guess I'll just sort of reconstruct what I had and call it good. :P It's a nuisance and a puzzle, but not a major disaster.

27 July 2013 by anonymous10
The x64 windows versions of Chromium are up.

27 July 2013 by Woolyss
@GrandmaDragon, good news!

@anonymous10, no sorry ! See my #comment-6 above.

28 July 2013 by Lione
Interesting! Thank you.

29 July 2013 by Anonymous00
Thanks! I've missed this website for months, almost a year.

Just a recommendation, you could build up a .BAT file wich will update Chromium to the next stable release if it exists at this page.
Here's one that updates through the snapshot trunk(?)
Just like this one, give it a try to understand its behaviour: https://goo.gl/Md0P8g (first 2 results are reliable, original website of it dissapeared).
In this case it works as a Scheduled Task under Windows.

This recommendation is the only thing could make even better this project of yours.
Thank you a lot. :)

2 August 2013 by anonymous14
When the Windows version reads, "good build," does that mean it is not "tremendously buggy," or buggy? Because the main
Chromium download page at https://download-chromium.appspot.com/ reads "This is the raw build of Chromium for Windows, right off the trunk. It may be tremendously buggy.
Consider Chrome Canary or Dev Channel for a build that regularly auto-updates to latest."

4 August 2013 by anonymous15
64 bit Chromium is still not available on FTP.

8 August 2013 by Arcalimon
Great site, thanks for your work!

12 August 2013 by anonymous17
So basically, you just give the links from Continuous builds? Is there no more stable version than this?

12 August 2013 by Woolyss
Thank you all !

@anonymous17, Links from Continuous builds concern only #windows platform. And no, I do not know more stable version than this. :/ For other platforms as #mac or #linux, there are really stable builds done by developers. These Chromium versions are the same as Google Chrome versions.

@anonymous14, "good build" means that it is the less buggy version of Chromium. "Chrome Canary" and "Dev Channel" concern only Google Chrome (which is not open source), not Chromium !

@Anonymous00, I check your interesting solution. Thanks a lot.

20 August 2013 by anonymous19
Great job! Very useful!

24 August 2013 by anonymous20
Thanks a lot for your clear explanation.

30 August 2013 by anonymous21
Hey thanks for this awesome site!
I should note that the x64 builds are actually 64-bit. I checked Process Explorer and the chrome executable was identified as 64-bit in that column.

31 August 2013 by Woolyss
Thanks everyone! ;)

@anonymous21, I follow the development of 64-bit versions... and encourage you to read my #comment-6 above.
Actually, do not use Chromium 64-bit on Windows. It can be less stable than the 32-bit version. But if you really want it, you can! I added the Chromium 64-bit version on #windows ! ^^

2 September 2013 by anonymous23
@Woolyss, Thanks for the clarification. It makes much more sense now. :) Keep up the good work!

9 September 2013 by anonymous24
Hello Woolyss!
Would it be possible to get an RSS feed of the latest Chromium stable release (sort of a simple update method)?

10 September 2013 by Woolyss
Thank you for your support!
@anonymous24, Ok! Check my RSS feeds! ^^ Moreover, a simple #api is available too! ;) All is automatically updated every 2 hours. If you want more, tell me here!

22 September 2013 by anonymous26
Very useful site! I see that the updates are automatic. So, is it possible to have a list of the best releases without bug? Thanks.

26 September 2013 by anonymous27
Probably too ambitious, but it would be great to have an update extension that downloads the latest build if newer and runs the installation file. There unfortunately doesn't seem to be any extensions like that out there.

29 September 2013 by SaphirJD
Very nice site, so I can find out what is the actual stable release for updating Chromium :D
Once a Firefox User, but with Mozilla's attempt to make a cheap Chrome clone i am glad for such a site like yours where i can find the actual stable version of the one and only valid Original :D

29 September 2013 by anonymous29
I noticed there's now a repo for Android builds, can that be added too? :)

Hey man, that's finally a good website about Chromium :D
Just to know, will you share ever (or never) your API/website code? Just to know, just to make scripts for Windows Chromium auto-updating or else ;)

1 October 2013 by Woolyss
Thank you all !

@anonymous26, I will not offer a list of the best releases without bug. But, you can get the latest non buggy Chromium version from my other page: http://chromium.woolyss.com/download/ Hope you like it! ;)

@anonymous27, Sincerely, I have never done an extension for Chromium/Google Chrome. But sure, if someone do it, it will be nice!

@SaphirJD, Thank you very much for your feedback.

@anonymous29, Yes, I can get the best build for Android (.zip archive from Continuous repository) like others. But, I know nothing about the stable version. I need to check that. Good suggestion!

@Giovanni Santini, Code, no. My API is available for everybody. So, you can use it freely in your add-on script... but obviously not to create another website like mine. Note that my main website (woolyss.com) exists since 2007. Do not worry, this site will still exist in several years! ^^

For me, a good Chromium Updater add-on should offer:
- Download latest Snapshot build (may unstable) • by your own way
- Download latest Continuous "success" build (more stable) • via my API
- Download latest Continuous "non buggy" build (more and more stable) • via my API

If you need to contact me, check my email address in the footer of http://woolyss.com/ (I know, the main page is crappy! xD)
Good luck!

2 October 2013 by SaphirJD
Hey :D Is it also possible to find the latest "non buggy build" in a manual way on the Chromium Build sites like the build.chromium.org/p/chromium.win/console one? For what information I have to look for? :)

4 October 2013 by GG
I've been looking for a website like this since Chromium was released. I imagine this: since Chrome official release "X" is the same as Chromium build "Y", we should always be able to download Chromium "Y" instead. Then, with the following command we can always run our browser: \chrome-win32\chrome.exe --user-data-dir="PROFILE_FOLDER_NAME"

Do you agree with me that this is a good idea? Rather than the latest Chromium, we have the Chromium which is the same as the current Chrome? (or as similar as possible)

Thanks so much for your work!

4 October 2013 by anonymous34
Cannot run the 64-bit version on Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, but no problems running the 32-bit version in this operating system (quite right if you say that the operating system will disappear soon...). On the other hand, x64 editions of Windows 7 are OK.

4 October 2013 by Woolyss
@anonymous34, Thanks for your feedback on WinXP x64. I have never tested. Chromium 64-bit version on Windows is very experimental. Google does not use it. I encourage you to read my #comment-6 above. ;)

@SaphirJD, (answered by mail)

@GG, You wrote: "we should always be able to download Chromium "Y" instead."
You can not, I think. (I am not a specialist! Maybe it is possible) I explain quickly: When a new official release of Google Chrome get out, the equivalent Chromium release is automatically deleted in Google repositories. You can check that yourself!

Example with the revision 225456:
Reference: Google Chrome release: 30.0.1599.66 (225456) • Date: Tuesday, 1 October 2013

Continuous repo: https://storage.googleapis.com/chromium-browser-continuous/index.html?path=Win/225456/ → Empty :/
Snapshots repo: https://storage.googleapis.com/chromium-browser-snapshots/index.html?path=Win/225456/ → Empty :/

Moreover, xx.x.xxxx.66 in this version means that 66 patches were made by Google. Chromium has not got these patches. So, Chromium will be always less stable than Chrome for sure. In conclusion, I recommend to use the latest Chromium releases... or the stable Chromium releases built by developers (like on Linux distributions).

If you are developer, you can re-build it. Check #source-code. Good luck! ;)

I found a way but I think it is not very interesting!
Probably, the next stable and major versions (Google Chrome) will be:

I am not sure. I must follow this.

11 October 2013 by GG
How does FreeSMUG choose a build? Maybe you can do what they do...

I find these random Chromium builds very unstable and buggy, so I must regretfully use IronPortable instead :\ :(
Thank you for your work :)

12 October 2013 by anonymous37
I have a question how your selection these build in this page: http://chromium.woolyss.com/download/ This is a really nice page!

How you can know if the build have no bugs?

32.0.1666.0 (227671): https://build.chromium.org/p/chromium.lkgr/builders/Win/builds/6734
32.0.1669.0 (228339): https://build.chromium.org/p/chromium.lkgr/builders/Win/builds/6761

These pages seems to that they both are same. So how I can find out if there is any bug?

12 October 2013 by Bucur
I see you are an expert on Chromium. Do you have any idea how to hide (auto-hide, disable) the download bar at the bottom of the browser? It is tedious to close it after each download or it occupies screen space if left open. Thank you!

13 October 2013 by Woolyss
Thank you all for your support. Ok. I explain! ;)

@GG, I think that Chromium should not be used in production if it is not stable. On #windows, it is always buggy! I try to offer the best builds on Windows. The Google team says: use them as your own risk!

About FreeSMUG, the main developer choose the same Chromium version as Google Chrome version and re-build it. Check #notes to understand. He improves it, corrects few bugs, add its own updater... And, no sorry, I have never built Chromium. I prefer web development! ;)

@anonymous37, "Build successful" is not enough. Make sure that your revision has no bug. "BUG=none" does not mean "stable"! A stable version is a version tested by many humans and automated tests.

Latest build without bug: 32.0.1666.0 (227671)

Latest build: 32.0.1669.0 (228339)

@Bucur, I am not an expert! ;) I need only a good version of Chromium in my development environnement. So, I created this website for that.

How to automatically hide Chromium's download bar?
There is no option in Chromium. Use this excellent add-on:

15 October 2013 by Coinneach
Great idea, thank you! Just two short questions about #windows version.

1) Why does the .exe version install a slightly different fileset (or maybe the same fileset, but differently organized) than the .zip version?

2) Will the .exe version ever have the option to choose the destination folder?
Best regards

17 October 2013 by Woolyss
1) The .exe and .zip use significantly the same fileset. It is normal to have a difference because an .exe is a compiled version. And because all is open-source, the difference is not very important!

2) I think the Google team will not add an option to choose the destination folder in Chromium. Since then, Google Chrome has not got this option. :/
Check this Google official topic: https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/chrome/R-wESj1EIk8

Note that I added a stable version of Chromium for #windows! ^^

2 November 2013 by SmirGel
When you try to search something in the 32-bit version the "fade" effect is not there anymore but in 64-bit version it is. Hope you understand what I'm trying to say it also appears in 32-bit version you select stuff on websites.

7 November 2013 by MadHatter
I installed the 64-bit version of this, also I have the latest 64-bit Flash but this web browser although stated to be 64-bit is only 32-bit as it uses 32-bit Flash which if you install 32-bit Flash with 64-bit Flash then it conflicts, please fix it soon!

7 November 2013 by Woolyss
@SmirGel, Yes, it is true! ;)

@MadHatter, I know this issue. I hope that you read my #comment-6 above. I repeat: For #windows, all internal processes in the 64-bit version are in 32-bit. So, it is normal to have conflits. This is the choice of Google, not mine. :/ Do not use the 64-bit version in production. Use it only for test! Google does not use the 64-bit version to build its own browser (Google Chrome).

8 November 2013 by SmirGel
I'm not sure is anyone else having this problem but I like to have extensions in Chrome and I'd really like to use Chromium but every time I install Disconnect add-on it makes Shockwave crash. I even reported this to chromium bug forum but anyone else willing to try if it happens? Thanks for reply ^^

8 November 2013 by Woolyss
@SmirGel, I have never seen this issue of Chromium 32-bit version on Windows XP (32-bit) and Windows 7 (64-bit). What operating system do you use?

9 November 2013 by SmirGel
@Woolyss, I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate. Can you try this out as well? It has to be that problem cus every time I install disconnect add-on it makes Shockwave crash. When I disable it no more Shockwave crashes. I want to know is it just me or other people too?

14 November 2013 by Willams Carvalho
Hi there!
You know how can I deal with this situation? I'm using Chrome binary in my Selenium automated test, as you can see in the following code: [EDIT: Content deleted by Woolyss • 18 November 2013]
Thanks in advance,

14 November 2013 by Woolyss
@SmirGel, I tested Disconnect add-on in the latest build of Chromium 32-bit (revision: 234602) on Windows 7 Ultimate. All work perfectly with Shockwave!

@Willams Carvalho, I am really sorry but this site is not for development's bugs. So, I will delete your post. :/ See my #comment-1 above.

Sincerely sorry Williams! I can not handle your trouble. :/
Just one thing: The first line in your debug logs is very important: "org.openqa.selenium.WebDriverException: Could not find Chrome binary at...".
Error in your URI. ^^

14 November 2013 by SmirGel
@Woolyss, I installed the latest version of Chromium. Now, Shockwave just keeps crashing on Youtube when Disconnect is enabled and all the extension menus are also transparent. So I can't view anything in them. Seems like I've no other choice than go back to chrome unless you can help me with the problem somehow.

14 November 2013 by Woolyss
@SmirGel, Ok. It is strange! :/ I think that we have not got the same configuration. Did you check plugins conflit via chrome://plugins/ ? Me, I see all Youtube videos correctly with Disconnect add-on enabled. Just to test, uninstall Disconnect and try with Ghostery add-on. I hope that it will be ok for you.

23 November 2013 by marcelo.ar
Thank you very much for this great site!

I see you recently added a link to "Chromium Portable" project, I tested this version on Win XP and found it very unstable and buggy:
1) Every time I close v. 32.0.1700.6, it always crashes with launcher popup message "Whoa! Chromium has crashed. Relaunch now?"
2) The browser uses the English language in UI, even in Spanish Windows version
3) If I try to change the language to Spanish (or any other than English), it does not change when I restart the browser (same happens in earlier versions of chromium portable that doesn't crash on exit as 32.0.1700.6 does)
4) An error about "missing Google API keys" is always shown at startup

I've tested other portable versions of chromium such as:
a) Google Chrome (portableapps.com version)
b) Superbird (not 100% portable: it writes 2 'superbird' registry keys)
c) X-Chromium (winpenpack)
d) SrWare Iron
All those versions works fine, no one fails as chromium-portable.

I think a good option for those who needs a stable portable version is winpenpack's:
It can be easily updated with chromium zip buids you offer here

24 November 2013 by Woolyss
@marcelo.ar, ¡Hola! Thank you for your feedback. You know, all on this site is auto-updated by the server itself. I do not check each version. But after your review, I tested latest Chromium Portable (PortableApps.com) on Windows XP. I am totally agree with you. This build (32.0.1700.6) is really buggy! :/

1) This is a new issue. :/ Chromium Portable (PortableApps.com) 31.0.1650.8 has not got this trouble.
2 and 3) Yes. Issues known: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/crportable/hUU6b8LTdJo
4) This issue is known for few months now: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/crportable/A6MDtGTJZO0 Too bad! :/

About X-Chromium (winpenpack), I tested it on Windows XP. It works very well and it is fully open-source. I like it! I will had it tomorrow on this website.
Very thank you for you help. I see that you are Spanish. I checked your blog. Sorry, I do not understand Spanish but I like your links on Opera website!^^ ¡Caramba!

Superbird browser is good but is not open-source! :/

And... In few days, I will improve form on this site (+email, +user site, +rating). It will be ever possible to post review anonymously too.

24 November 2013 by anonymous54
Thank you a lot for your website !! It works great :)

26 November 2013 by anonymous55
Hey! Chrome installation is prohibited on my corporate laptop but I found Chromium Portable. But I have a problem syncing my google account and using chrome web apps on my chromium. I dont understand what I can do to enable this. Can someone help?

28 November 2013 by mihau
Thanks for this site. Having just switched from Chrome to Chromium, it seems to be the most helpful resource.

28 November 2013 by Woolyss
Thank you so much for all of your help, feedback and encouragement! ;)

@anonymous55, Did you resolve your problem? Which Chromium portable version do you use?

@mihau, Thanks. I try to maintain an interesting resource for users (like me! ^^). On #windows, I recommend to use Chromium as your secondary web browser because it can be unstable (Flash plugin issue or other). Otherwise, before to update it, do a copy of your user data (bookmarks...).

1 December 2013 by Donations
This is a super useful resource! I'd love to support you in keeping it up. Is it possible for you to add a Flattr link to this page so I can Flattr you every time I update? Other users may also like a Paypal donate link / Bitcoin wallet id to support you as well.

2 December 2013 by Woolyss
@Donations, Thank you very much. I am honored but I am not interested in Flattr or other way to earn money. I already have a good job! ;)

4 December 2013 by chrome
Nice project. Sadly, Chromium 64-bit (Windows) does not view Flash contents even if installed and activated (shockwave Flash crashed) notification bar. Is there a fix for this?

25 December 2013 by gorhill
You think the HTTP Switchboard extension is ok enough to appear in your list?

It blocks scripts/trackers/etc. I am the author, so I obviously will appeared biased, but I did some objective detailed tests, and I dare to say it does better job and gives more control to users than other privacy-enhancing applications available on Chromium.

4 January 2014 by Woolyss
Thank you for all. Happy new year!

@gorhill, Very good news! Your extension is excellent. I tested it. Now, your add-on is on the top of my list in #privacy section. ;) Thank you very much for your work.

10 January 2014 by Flaubert
Hello! I found a serious bug in Chromium installable release: bug not present in Chrome dev channel. Pratically, my Chromium reports a crash of the component "Adobe Shockwave Flash" (Error message: "Adobe Shockwave Flash has crashed") when the websites I visit, there are video type Flash.

Finally, after having tried everything I found the solution: go on Youtube, open a video and do the right mouse button: select "Settings" and then in the window that opens remove the check mark from "Hardware acceleration". With "Hardware acceleration" off...component "Shockwave Flash" of Chromium no longer crashes! Please....correct this bug!

12 January 2014 by Woolyss
@Flaubert, Thank you very much for your feedback. Sure, it works. I read that on other forums too. But this issue does not exist on Windows 32-bit using the external Flash plugin (https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/). I think (but I do not know) that you use a 64-bit version, is not it?

About Youtube, you can use the HTML5 Video Player: https://www.youtube.com/html5 (No Flash required)

13 January 2014 by Anthony
Have you considered producing 64 bit mac versions as provided here: https://build.chromium.org/p/chromium.fyi/builders/Chromium Mac 10.8 x64 (experimental)

20 January 2014 by anonymous66
Chromium 64 bit Windows from https://storage.googleapis.com/chromium-browser-continuous/Win_x64 no more installable. From 1790.0 (245341) to now 245803 1794.0, chrome.exe executable is not more contained in mini-installer.exe nor elsewere in other archives.

20 January 2014 by Woolyss
@Anthony, Thank you very much for your help. I added it on #mac part!

@anonymous66, Your link is wrong. ;) Check https://storage.googleapis.com/chromium-browser-continuous/index.html?path=Win_x64/

21 January 2014 by anonymous68
@Woolyss: Thanks for your very convenient website! I was wondering, since it's also open-source, it'd be a good idea to add Pale Moon to your recommended browsers. It's a Firefox-based browser optimized for Windows, you should take a look at its webpage: http://www.palemoon.org

23 January 2014 by anonymous69
I think it has a bug. It always says that the build contains 1x BUG but that's not true. It has more...

23 January 2014 by anonymous70
@anonymous69, This is the result of automated tests. Sure, It has got probably more than 1 bug! This site exists only to help us and is based directly on results of Google/Chromium Buildbot.

26 January 2014 by anonymous71
Thank you sooooo much! ♥

29 January 2014 by Woolyss
@anonymous70, +1 For your information, Chromium is always buggy because it is in development. "no bug" means that no bug was detected by Automated Tests. Read my #notes.

2 February 2014 by Dawid Stawicki
Hello! I am new here. First of all I'd like to say THANK YOU for this awesome builds. I really love Chromium browser, so thank you guys!
I am running at Windows 8.1. Is it possible to change wallpaper in Windows 8 mode? If I good remember, this feature were available in Chrome OS. That grey color is strange for me :)

Have a nice day, regards!

I have downloaded the Chromium installable version on my windows 8 and it doesn't work! :/

4 February 2014 by Raul
Please, I need Chromium 32.0.1700.107 binaries for Windows.

5 February 2014 by Woolyss
@Dawid Stawicki, Thank you! ;) Yes you can. Use themes: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/themes

@blogger templates, I do not know why it did not work for you. :/ Retry with the last version!

@Raul, Sorry! :/ Chromium 32.0.1700.107 corresponds to revision 248368.
http://googlechromereleases.blogspot.it/2014/02/stable-channel-update.html (Google Chrome)
https://src.chromium.org/viewvc/chrome?revision=248368&view=revision (Chromium)

Google deletes its Chromium packages when the same version of Google Chrome is released. Check yourself:

Chromium Snapshots: https://storage.googleapis.com/chromium-browser-snapshots/index.html?path=Win/248368/ → Empty :/
Chromium Continuous: https://storage.googleapis.com/chromium-browser-continuous/index.html?path=Win/248368/ → Empty :/

...but it is available on its SVN. You must to re-build it. Use https://src.chromium.org/svn/releases/32.0.1700.107/DEPS or this official Google repo: https://gsdview.appspot.com/chromium-browser-official/chromium-32.0.1700.107.tar.xz (169 MB)

@Woolyss, Thanks for your reply but I mean this: https://i.imgur.com/9X2HbX9.png

5 February 2014 by Woolyss
@Dawid Stawicki, Ok, sorry for the misunderstanding. I do not use Chrome OS or Chromium OS.
Did you check the official help about wallpaper in Chrome OS?
...or this post of an official Chromium developer?

Thank you for combining all this resources into one. I'd like to comment about X-Chromium (winpenpack). Current version is very unstable and buggy(34): Every relaunch after initial use caused BEX error chrome.dll_unloaded error 5da47c81 on my pc.(several) Apparently it seems there is no king of portable chromium just yet...

9 February 2014 by Woolyss
@anonymous79, Thank you! I tested it in Virtual Machine. On Windows XP (32-bit) and Windows 7 (32-bit), there is no BEX error. But, I found it on Windows 7 (64-bit). I fixed it on Windows 7 following this method: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cEkoK3EHOlU BEX error is known on Google Chrome too.

BEX Indicates a buffer overflow (/GS) or DEP exception (BEX64 indicates a buffer overflow (/GS) or DEP exception on 64-bit versions of Windows). For more details, http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc738483(WS.10).aspx

I use Ubuntu 10.10. I am tired of apt-get install method. I use an opera portable browser binary at present, without installing anything. Can't we get a similar binary for Chromium browser. The binary may have to include dependencies, or ask for easily available dependencies.

10 February 2014 by anonymous82
I have problems with the newest Chromium Build Version 34.0.1833.0 (250015) on Windows 7.
Often no images are shown or they disapear after some seconds. This is on all websites.

Can someone reproduce it and create a bug report?
I have no Google-account and don't want one.

So I tried to install an older version, but it's still this buggy version. Now, Chromium even don't start...

@Woolyss, What can I do to get a working browser?
I have all my bookmarks in Chromium and Firefox has lots of small things why I don't like it.

This is the second time I get a build here that is not usable. First was on OS X 10.6.8

10 February 2014 by Woolyss
@yb, Yes I understand all and I agree with you. Opera is a good web browser. I recommend it too. Good choice!

@anonymous82, Chromium is continually in development. And because it can be unstable, do not use it as your primary browser! Prefer a stable browser like Firefox, Opera, Google Chrome...
About Chromium, never update it with an older version. It is really not good. Now, Chromium even don't start. Try to get your bookmarks. Check links in #comment-8 for help. And update Chromium browser or import your bookmarks in another browser like Opera. Good luck!

Note: This page is a blend of official resources about Chromium browser. I am absolutely not a developer of that browser. This page exists only to help you... and me!

11 February 2014 by anonymous84
@Woolyss, I can backup my Profile and Chromium and test a new version.
If it works, I keep it, else I delete all data and restore working program.

C:\Users\xyz\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data

This seems to be the only possibility to have always a working browser.

23 February 2014 by anonymous85
Amazing job, just what I need for my Mac :)

2 March 2014 by Stephan
Thanks for providing these (daily) builds of Chromium. Much appreciated.
One question/remark: Is there a specific need for all these "version-buildnumer.manifest" files or could we actually do without all but the last one?

2 March 2014 by Woolyss
Thank you all! ;)
@Stephan, You can delete all .manifest files except the one corresponding to your release. In other words, if your version is 35.0.1860.0. Keep 35.0.1860.0.manifest and delete all other .manifest files. These files are automatically generated by the Buildbot of Chromium at Google.

3 March 2014 by Japa
Hi there,
I have finally found an extension that enables PDF viewing in 64-bit Chromium for Mac OSX.

It's a PDF Viewer from Rob W posted here:

3 March 2014 by Woolyss
@Japa, Yes, Thanks. I know it. It is a good add-on. Archive of this page in November 2013: https://goo.gl/TJJ5j3 (archive.org). Check in #features part! ^^

3 March 2014 by Derek
Is it possible to build in H.264 support into Chrome?

5 March 2014 by Woolyss
@Derek, Sorry, I do not use Google Chrome. The only thing I know is that Chromium does not support H.264 currently.

6 March 2014 by Marcelo.ar [site]
@Stephan, @Woolyss,
Those *.manifest files are only in zip version of Chromium (chrome-win32.zip). You can also delete "pnacl" folder and "interactive_ui_tests.exe" to save disk space. "pnacl" folder will be created by Chromium in profile folder after 1st. run.

6 March 2014 by Woolyss
@Marcelo.ar, Hello! ;)
I disagree with you about your "ONLY"! :D Those *.manifest files also exist in main folder (of each version) after executing/update of "mini_installer.exe" on Windows XP (32-bit) and Windows 7 (64-bit). In any case, thank you very much for your help... and your links on your site! ;)

6 March 2014 by anonymous94
@Woolyss, Hello! :)
Yes, you are right! I've checked a very old mini_installer and there were no *.manifest files inside.

Now I downloaded a recent mini_installer (35.0.1868.0), and found 87 .manifest files:
86 are [version].manifest and one mksnapshot.ia32.exe.assert.manifest

The zip package has 622 .manifest files with different names

6 March 2014 by mauro
I don't like google. I use Chromium on Debian. I did not know where I could find Chromium for Windows.
Thank you. This website is useful.

6 March 2014 by Woolyss
@Marcelo.ar, Yes, it is totally crazy! :/

@mauro, Thank you. Do not forget that Chromium on #windows can be unstable. Use it as your secondary browser.

10 March 2014 by Deeshay
Thank you for a terrific site Woolyss!

For general interest, I have found a rather easy way to enable some of the excluded features:

1. PDF Reader and Print Preview - Copy the file 'pdf.dll' from an existing Chrome install directory to your Chromium install directory. The PDF reader will work without further config. To enable print preview simply add '--enable-print-preview' to the end of your shortcut path.

2. Pepper Flash - Copy the file 'pepflashplayer.dll' from an existing Chrome install directory to your Chromium install directory. To enable the plugin, simply add '--ppapi-flash-path=pepflashplayer.dll' to the end of your shortcut path. You can also tell Chromium what version with '--ppapi-flash-version='.

Hopefully this helps someone out there just as you have done for me Woolyss ;)
Keep up with the great work and thank you once again!

11 March 2014 by Haris
Thank you, but where is the stable Windows version 33?

11 March 2014 by Woolyss
@anonymous97, Excellent! ;) Thank you very much for your help. For Windows users, I prepare a tutorial to make Chromium like Google Chrome. ^^ I would like to re-use and improve your comment. Can I ?

@Haris, Why is it not possible to get the stable Windows version 33? Answers in my #comment-76 and #comment-18.

There is absolutely no stable Chromium version on #windows (and #android too) currently! :/ No developer built (or share) it on these OS. And officially, Google Chrome is the stable version. Read my #notes. For the latest best releases, check http://chromium.woolyss.com/download/ if you want. All links point directly to Google servers. Google is the official hoster of Chromium project.

12 March 2014 by Deeshay
Feel free to use my comments any way you like Woolyss :)

I will be very interested to read and share your tutorial as well.

To add PepperFlash to X-Chromium Portable (WinPenPack):
1. Be sure X-Chromium is not running
2. Copy PepperFlash folder (with the 2 files pepflashplayer.dll & manifest.json) from a Google Chrome installation or portable version and paste it into X-Chromium's: X-Chromium\Bin\Chrome
3. Edit the file X-Chromium.ini (in same location as X-Chromium.exe), and modify it under [FileToRun] section like this...

Parameters=--user-data-dir="%Profile%" --disk-cache-dir="$Cache$" --ppapi-flash-path=$Bin$\$AppName$\PepperFlash\pepflashplayer.dll --ppapi-flash-version=

... and save changes.

As you see, I've added 2 command line switches:
--ppapi-flash-path=$Bin$\$AppName$\PepperFlash\pepflashplayer.dll --ppapi-flash-version=

Previous is valid for pepper-flash v.

4. Run X-Chromium.exe, type chrome://plugins/ and select which flash plugin you want yo enable, ppapi (peper-flash) or npapi (netscape type plugin)


To add pdf viewer look at @anonymous97 #comment-97

Remember you can keep X-Chromium up to day with chromium zip packages, just unzip files under X-Chromium\Bin\Chrome and remove some useless files such as *.manifest, except [latestversion].manifest

Anyone know how to get the old New Tab Page back? I am not experienced enough to pull the code from an old version :(

13 March 2014 by Woolyss
@Deeshay and @Marcelo.ar, Really thank you for your great help!

@anonymous102, Did you test these add-ons to get the old New Tab Page?

14 March 2014 by Fabian
Hi there,
Thank you very much for this site, it is extremely useful! If I want to build the "Chromium Portable (winPenPack build)" by myself, how can I do that? Do you have build instructions and/or build scripts available to share?
Thanks and regards, Fabian

Latest version 35.0.1889.0 sets off Avast reporting a Win32:Evo-gen [susp] virus.

14 March 2014 by Woolyss
@Fabian, Thanks a lot! You should contact winPenPack team. They need developers! ^^ The team is really active.
Otherwise, build instructions are on http://www.chromium.org/developers/how-tos Good luck! ;)

@Shawn, It is surely a false positive. Why?
1. Each Chromium release is downloadable directly from Google (or SourceForge) servers via a secure connection (https://).
2. Test your file on https://www.virustotal.com/
3. It is a generic detection. So, it is surely a false positive.
4. If you do not trust me, report this issue on official support (Check links in #comment-1).

Can anyone pull the code of the new tab page from 32?

15 March 2014 by Lionel
Hi, do you know on Chromium how to handle app with "open with" ? For example, I have a link to sopcast player It doesn't open sopcast. Google Chrome does. Thanks for help.

15 March 2014 by Marcelo.ar
@Shawn, I've experienced same problem as you with Chromium 35.0.1888.0.
While chromium was running avast autoupdated to vps 140314-0 and after a warning, without asking confirmation, chrome.exe was deleted by avast, not quarantained because of a wrong default configuration.
Obviously, it was a false positive (it was fixed later with vps 140314-1)

@Woolyss, I've quickly tested new Chromium Portable v. 35.0.1881.0, and it has same bugs and failures as previous old version (#comment-52) It also brings a new bug, because it creates and leaves three registry keys behind after first run

Regshot log:
Keys added:3

As we know, a good portable app must delete any created registry keys and temp files on exit.

The author of this Chromium Portable, Aluísio Augusto Silva Gonçalves, says in the forum that he doesn't know how to fix the crash on exit problem.
A forum user gives a workaround: Close Chromium Portable with CTRL + SHIFT + Q

X-Chromium Portable (winPenPack) doesn't have this problem, the launcher deletes all registry keys and temp files created on exit.

16 March 2014 by Woolyss
@anonymous107, Sorry. No! :/ Otherwise, see my #comment-103

@Marcelo.ar, BIG thanks. It is true! You are a master! ^^ I updated this section: #windows-32-bit-portable-portableapps

18 March 2014 by Daniel
Please can someone explain to me is this newly added is portable ? >>>> Chromium Package
chrome-win32.zip • Version: 35.0.1898.0 (257592) • Date: Tuesday, 18 March 2014

18 March 2014 by Woolyss
@Daniel, Chromium package (.ZIP archive) write Windows registry keys (HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Chromium)... and create your profile folder for your user data (extensions, bookmarks...), on your first run, in another place on your computer. Therefore, this version is not portable.

18 March 2014 by Daniel
@Woolyss, Thanks for your fast answer, so which version you would recommend to use ? I need 100% portable one.
And since you marked portableapps.com version as buggy, I dont want to use it at all!

18 March 2014 by Woolyss
@Daniel, Check your mailbox! ^^

I have installed Chromium Installable mini_installer.exe • Version: 35.0.1904.0 (258717) on Windows 7 (32-bit).

If I want to start chromium with chrome.exe I get:
Name der fehlerhaften Anwendung: chrome.exe, Version: 35.0.1904.0, Zeitstempel: 0x532d4ad8
Name des fehlerhaften Moduls: unknown, Version:, Zeitstempel: 0x00000000
Ausnahmecode: 0xc0000005
Fehleroffset: 0x6ad1c989
ID des fehlerhaften Prozesses: 0xb24

If I click the chrome.exe a second time Chromium starts.
So I have to click the button always to times. What is wrong? Please help.

24 March 2014 by Woolyss
@Ben, About Windows OS, I use Seven (64-bit) and XP (32-bit). On XP, I found no issue like you when I opened Chromium 35.0.1904.0 (258717) via its shortcut. I used no flag. This revision is correct on Windows: https://codereview.chromium.org/206453006

So, it is probably a bug on Seven (32-bit). I do not know. Retry with a newest version when it will be possible. If you do not want to wait, delete your current version and try with an older version: https://storage.googleapis.com/chromium-browser-continuous/index.html?path=Win/ Good luck!

25 March 2014 by Ben
@Woolyss, Bitdefender cause the issue, no win 7 32 bit bug.
What do you mean?
Better take Dragon (best speed on my PC, DNS Option, Referer Suppress without plugin) but, geez! Version 31.1!!
Or Superbird, only nearly latest Version? A "botched job"?
Or take a "too new one" like 35 (now)
For browsing and having buying transactions?
would be nice you send a short comment. thank you.

27 March 2014 by Woolyss
@Ben, For browsing and having buying transactions, choose a stable web browser like Firefox, Midori, Opera, Google Chrome... On #windows, Chromium can be unstable. Personnally, I do not recommend to use Chromium as your primary browser.

27 March 2014 by anonymous119
Hello! Is there a way to permanently save command line switches on Windows? I can only find information regarding ways for Linux. Thank you :)

27 March 2014 by Ben
@Woolyss, Thanks.
Can be unstable means the risk of crashes? or risks of vulnerable, security issues?
I was very happy to find your site because I tried several chromium forks and thought getting something stable, (mostly) secure-safe with the "good build".

And, without wanting to spam you with stupid questions and steeling your time,
If I open this site: chrome://net-internals/#dns after 5 - to 10 seconds the site shows me:

dblzwbd UNSPECIFIED error: -105 (ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED) 2014-03-27 16:33:33.206 [Expired]
fgvgglqpzigvhss UNSPECIFIED error: -105 (ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED) 2014-03-27 16:33:33.207 [Expired]
sdswyxp UNSPECIFIED error: -105 (ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED) 2014-03-27 16:33:33.206 [Expired]

My startpage is about:newtab
The letters a always different if i test the ...#dns site again.

Please, are you able to give me answer?

27 March 2014 by Woolyss
@anonymous119, On Windows, write your #command-line-flags directly at the end of the Chromium shortcut. See this snapshot: https://i.imgur.com/iiH6fmg.png (similar way on Chromium)

@Ben, Yes, Chromium can be unstable, like on this #comment-7 It is rare but it is possible!
And about your DNS issues, I have got the same results like you if I enable phishing and malware protection. To change it, check your privacy settings and uncheck the corresponding option.

27 March 2014 by Ben
Thank you again, Woolyss!
If I search at https://storage.googleapis.com/chromium-browser-continuous/index.html?path=Win/
(like comment "in resume": Continuous builds: Tested and more stable versions. Me, I prefer this repository for #windows and #mac. ^^)
for (257193), is this the same version like Google Chrome 33.0.1750.154?

27 March 2014 by Woolyss
@Ben, Thanks, you are welcome! ^^
About stability, Google Chrome and Chromium are really different. Read my #comment-35 about "patches" and my other #comment-76. I have already given the answer! ^^

27 March 2014 by Ben
@Woolyss, yes, pardon, you already give the answer.

Is there another Chrome-clone updated browser than Opera?
Otherwise I fear my Chromium-dream is gone...

27 March 2014 by Woolyss
@Ben, There are many browsers based on Chromium:

You can read my personal recommendation for desktop and mobile web #browsers too!
Good luck! ;)

28 March 2014 by Raul
Please, I need help with download source code from this DEPS: https://src.chromium.org/svn/releases/33.0.1750.154/DEPS I want rebuild this. I followed the guide, but I get stuck at this step.


28 March 2014 by Woolyss
@Raul, Sorry, I can not help you more than the official documentation. Check #source-code. Good luck! ;)

29 March 2014 by anonymous128
Hello Woolyss,
I use http://chromium.woolyss.com/download/ for trying. Best choice, I think.

You wrote: "And about your DNS issues, I have got the same results like you if I enable phishing and malware protection. To change it, check your privacy settings and uncheck the corresponding option".

There is no different between enable/disable phishing and malware protection. I tried with/without addons, with HTTP Switchboard, incognito mode. Always these 3 results. Any idea?

31 March 2014 by Passing By

I did not know that the Chromium engine still had Google in it and thought that Chrome added all the Google bit & bobs at an higher level

3 April 2014 by Joe
Hi Woolyss,

Thanks so much for providing these Windows builds for Chromium - I was getting very frustrated with Iron...... I have one small request if possible: you replied to Derek's #comment-90 above regarding H.264 support in Chromium and that it wasn't supported.
According to this post:
https://plus.google.com/u/0/ FrancoisBeaufort/posts/NHYa95SZphm
and here:

it *is* now supported by Chromium. Is there any chance you could include this functionality in some future builds please?

5 April 2014 by anonymous131
This site is just amazing. It's exactly what I needed. Making available for download the latest and best Chromium release without bug is a brilliant idea.

Thank you so much Woolyss and keep up the excellent work!

7 April 2014 by Woolyss
Thank you all for your support! ;)

@Passing By, Behind its open-source side, Chromium is a Google project.

@Joe, I disagree with you. Chromium does not support MP3 and H.264.

"When building Google Chrome, the following codecs/containers are also included:
- MP3 audio codec
- AAC audio codec (Main only, not AAC-LC, AAC-SSR, HE-AAC)
- H.264 video codec
- MP4 container format"
Source: http://dev.chromium.org/audio-video

By default, Google Chrome has got these non-free codecs because Google pays the respective licenses for its own stable browser... but NOT for Chromium.

8 April 2014 by Joe
Hi Woolyss,

Unless I'm mistaken, and please correct me if I am wrong, Chromium uses the open source FFMPEG code to implement H.264 support. Google may well pay license fees to include support for these codecs in their proprietary browser however the Chromium based FFMPEG source code is included in the open source Chromium code (see https://src.chromium.org/viewvc/chrome/trunk/deps/third_party/ffmpeg/) which means H.264 and MP3 support *is* now possible. Also, the post by François Beaufort https://plus.google.com/u/0/ FrancoisBeaufort/posts/NHYa95SZphm, who works at Google, would suggest that it is possible also. See this post too https://plus.google.com/111991826926222544385/posts/VGWkJeH3Dsh

Why not give it a whirl? :)

9 April 2014 by Woolyss
Hello Joe,
Ok! I understood. You are right! ^^
Yes, I know that it is possible. All is possible! ;) Chromium forks (like Opera browser) do that... but you forgot the Google's strategy! x_x
- Chromium is the Google open source web browser project → for developers.
- Google Chrome is the stable release → for all users.

In resume, yes it is possible! But the Google team (aka The Chromium Authors) decide all. Google prefers to curb Chromium browser and force users to use Google Chrome.

If you are developer (like François Beaufort ^^), you can build your own Chromium browser with MP3, H.264 codecs and other features. About me, sorry, I have no time to maintain and share modified Chromium versions.
Kind regards,

Chromium will NOT allow Twitter to load for service!

Very good news about Chromium Portable (PortableApps format)!
Two bugs (see #comment-52 and #comment-109) has been fixed since version 35.0.1916.27, April 10, 2014:

1) The bug about registry keys leaved behind is fixed.
I reported this issue in the official forum
I posted as "F.M." :)

2) The crash on exit issue is also fixed.
I've tried to report this in the forum since November 2013 but my message was never published (crportable mailing list is moderated). Anyway it was reported by other users.

3) I found a workaround for the "change language" issue:
After first run, close ChromiumPortable, make sure it is not running, and edit "ChromiumPortableSettings.ini" file (located at "<install-folder>\ChromiumPortable\Data\settings") and change the line "Language=en-US" to desired language and save it, for example, Spanish Latin America is 'Language=es-419' (you can find all language strings inside 'Locales' folder).
Now launch ChromiumPortable: browser should display UI in selected language.

13 April 2014 by Woolyss
Hello F.M.! ;)
Thank you very much for your work. I also tested it and updated the corresponding part: #windows-32-bit-portable-portableapps

Thursday, 17 April 2014 at 4:42pm by ben
I had problems with HTTP Switchboard at Version 36.0.1939.0, but not at Version 36.0.1933.0
Ok, i try with other words:
I don't want to test every "latest and best release" if HTTP Switchboard is running on it without probs or not.
Maybe there is somewhere to read about,if this addon is really ready for which Version.
Sorry for my bad english.

Friday, 18 April 2014 at 5:26pm by Woolyss
Hello Ben! ;)
I deleted our 2 last uninteresting comments. I hope you understand.
Thank you for your feedback. I understood your trouble but I can do nothing! Sorry. If you have issue with HTTP Switchboard, contact gorhill (Raymond Hill). He is the developer. Or use another add-on about #privacy.

Leave few words !
