News

1. For this site

  • CHANGED In the Buildbot results, "bug=none" does not mean "build without bug". So, I cleaned my #rss feeds and #api about that. Example of a good build: 285741 (on Windows: 8115)
  • CHANGED Major update. The full site is now based on the Git revision's commit hash. See my #api to quickly understand.
  • FIXED About Chromium builds stored at SourceForge: If your browser does not send a referer header, you can directly download them.
  • CHANGED Modified content of each #rss feed in order to provide a better visibility into RSS readers.
  • CHANGED Shortened URLs about Google Cloud Storage: commondatastorage.googleapis.com → storage.googleapis.com
  • NEW Now you can post anonymous #comments. Enjoy!

Reference: Current stable version (Google Chrome): 36.0.1985.57 • Date: Wednesday, 20 August 2014

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! ^^

Notes

Obviously, you know that this site is not the Chromium official website. As a regular user (not an expert), I created it because I did not find a simple way to download good releases. I try to keep it as safe (only official links used) and fast as possible! ;) This is absolutely a non-profit site. Please, read my #privacy-policy (on the right side).

In short:
  • The official website is development oriented. Users are invited to download Google Chrome
  • The official download page gives to users only Nightly builds (using the official Snapshots repository)
  • This "all-in-one" site gives to users the best builds (using the official Continuous repository)

1. Beginning

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

2. Stable Chromium version

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

In fact, Chromium has a stable version. ^^
Example: The current stable version on #linux is 37.0.2062.94. There are 94 patches which correct many issues. Because Chromium is open-source (#source-code), anybody can build it. You must be a developer to do this. Just get the current stable version (37.0.2062.94) from the official SVN/Git repositories and build it! Add new features, correct bugs...

The stable version is used in:

3. 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 the Continuous builds.

In resume:
  • Snapshots: Untested and may be unstable versions (known as Nightly builds). Official download page
  • Continuous: Tested and more stable versions.

4. Finally

This site uses the official Continuous repository.

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

So, I give you the opportunity to download only nice Chromium releases.
If you want, check my multilingual site: → download/

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

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

Features

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 a #chromium-updater)
  • no built-in Flash player (Solutions: Check the #flash part)
  • no support of non free codecs (AAC, MP3, H.264) by the HTML <audio> and <video> elements
  • no user RLZ identifier
  • no user metrics (usage statistics) (opt-in option)
  • no crash report (opt-in option)
  • More details on the official site

More information about Google Chrome plugins

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

Flash

There are 2 ways to add the Flash plugin in Chromium. The simplest way is to use the NPAPI plugin: Adobe Flash Player

The other way is to use the sandboxed PPAPI plugin: PepperFlash
(If Google Chrome is already installed, go directly to the step 3)

1. Get PepperFlash

Because this plugin is a non-free (proprietary) software, get it from Google Chrome.

Get the plugin:
Optionally, get the Flash version number:
(If you want to see the correct version number on Chromium internal pages)
  • On all OS, get it by opening the manifest.json text file in the PepperFlash folder
  • On Windows, you can do a right-click → Properties → Version, on pepflashplayer.dll

2. Change the plugin directory

Prefer a short path for the plugin. It will be easier for the next step. ^^
On Windows, put this .dll file in a path like C:\PepperFlash\ (Create the directory if needed)

3. Create a Chromium shortcut

Use these #command-line-flags: --ppapi-flash-path and --ppapi-flash-version
Example on Windows:
--ppapi-flash-path="C:\PepperFlash\pepflashplayer.dll" --ppapi-flash-version="14.0.0.179"

4. Restart the browser

Relaunch it to apply changes.

5. Check the installation

Type chrome://flash in your address bar to check your Flash plugin used.
Type chrome://plugins to see all plugins.
If the NPAPI Adobe Flash Player is installed, PepperFlash will be the default plugin.
For update, check your version on the official Adobe Flash Player versions page.

6. Enjoy!

Now, even after browser updates, Chromium uses PepperFlash. ^^

Advanced

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

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, with the German language UI on Windows?
Add flags at the end of the Chromium shortcut and restart the browser.
"C:\{...}\Chromium\Application\chrome.exe" --incognito --lang=de

5. External extension installation

Get source .crx extension file of any Chrome extension directly from Google Chrome Web Store via Give Me CRX add-on or an online tool
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 full Chromium source code:
Few interesting information:

7. Older version

Never update your browser with an older version. It even does not start.

If you need to install an older Chromium version:
  1. Uninstall your actual version. Destroy the main folder, the #user-data-directory (and the registry keys, on #windows)
  2. Get your older version from the Continuous repository, and install it. Enjoy!

8. Browser crash

You have encountered a browser crash! :/

Few ways to help you:
Use #command-line-flags too! Note that the incognito mode disable all extensions by default.

API

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 my #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

Response:
chromiumwindows or mac or android
  • architecture(string) 32-bit or 64-bit
  • timestamp(integer) Unix time of this release built on the Google server
  • editor(string) The Chromium Authors
  • channel(string) dev
  • repository(string) continuous
  • folder(string) Folder name to download this release (= The Git revision's commit hash or the revision number)
  • revision(integer)
  • commit(string) Git revision's commit hash
  • version(string) (like xx.x.xxxx.x)
  • build(integer)
  • result(string) success
  • bug(string) n/a or none or bugs list corrected in this release (separated by commas)

Basic examples:
Example to get the latest build with outrevision parameter:

Browsers

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 (Optimized browser based on Firefox. It works on Windows, Linux and Android)
  • Tor Browser Bundle (Based on Firefox's layout engine • Use Tor, an anonymity network)
  • Dooble (Designed and implemented in order to improve privacy and usability)
  • or all other open-source browser in general.

Proprietary browsers:
  • Opera (Based on Chromium • Opera team has created some features 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. More on #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.

Privacy

For a better privacy protection, use open-source #browsers 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 the #source-code. With versioning tools like SVN or Git, it is easy for developers to find malicious code. This is better for user privacy! ^^

1. Browser update

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 software.

2. Browser settings

  • Do not log in with Google account
  • Enable incognito (or private) mode (Use a #flag to start Chromium in incognito mode)
  • Do not save passwords in the browser (Prefer a dedicated password manager like KeePass or LastPass)
  • Enable/disable Do Not Track (This option exists only for fun because most sites does not respect it. So, enable or disable it means same thing)
  • Disable the web service to help resolve navigation errors (using Google Safe Browsing)
  • Disable the prediction service to help complete searches and URLs typed in the address bar
  • Enable Click to play plugins (chrome://settings/content → Plug-ins → Click to play)

3. Hosts file

Modify your hosts file to protect your OS from many types of spyware and malware:

4. Search engines

Choose a web search/meta-search engine which respect your privacy:

5. Extensions

Note: Extensions hosted on the Chrome Web Store are updated via the Chrome update mechanism which developers and users do not control.

6. Tools

  • VPN
  • Anonymous proxy
  • Tor
  • Freenet
  • I2P

Also, read the official Chromium privacy

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.

Malware

You have downloaded Chromium and your antivirus detect a malicious software like a virus or trojan. It is a false positive. The detection is generic (heuristic). There is absolutely no backdoor or other malware inside. Just for information, the full #source-code is viewable directly on the web! More on #privacy...

These reports are known for few years ago:
My recommendation:
  • Make sure you download Chromium from official servers... like via this site ;)
  • Prefer open-source #chromium-updater.

Test your file on:
If you find an issue:
  • Contact your antivirus support
  • Report it on the official Chromium supports. For links, see my #comment-1 below.

Chromium updater

As always, never install a closed-source software especially if you have never heard it before!

Try these open-source Chromium updaters:
Thanks a lot for developers!
I do not support these tools. Please, contact the developers for issue, help...

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.

[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 still experimental.

Officially, Google Chrome 64-bit on Windows and Mac do not exist too!
Check the development channels : 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.today/mT07)

...here:
"The problem: Chrome runs as a 32-bit process on 64-bit Windows systems. [...] The plugins are still 32-bit libraries."
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 (PepperFlash/Adobe Flash player) and extensions (from Google Chrome Web Store) because plugins and extensions are mainly in 32-bit.

...and there:
On Windows... "The sandbox is designed for 32-bit processes"
http://www.chromium.org/developers/design-documents/sandbox

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

About Windows... (revision 211418):
• 64-bit: https://storage.googleapis.com/chromium-browser-continuous/index.html?prefix=Win_x64/211418/
• 32-bit: https://storage.googleapis.com/chromium-browser-continuous/index.html?prefix=Win/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:

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 the links above!). I think that Google waits 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. Speed is improved, especially in graphics and multimedia content, where there is an average 25% improvement in performance.

If you have got a better idea, please tell me here! ;)

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

H.264 is supported in Chrome but not Chromium.

So there's no way to enable it on Chromium?

@jaZ, Google Chrome and Chromium come with their own version of FFMPEG and do not use the system one.
• On Ubuntu (Linux), you need chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra.
• On Windows, I do not know. I tried to drag and drop ffmpegsumo.dll from Google Chrome to Chromium (32-bit versions), enabled "Disable hardware-accelerated video decode" in the chrome://flags page and tested few #command-line-flags... but nothing works. H.264 is still not available on https://www.youtube.com/html5

@TheAslan, which portable Chromium x64 do you use? Have you got the same issue with Chromium Installable or Package (ref. this page), 32-bit and 64-bit?

@Woolyss, Alright, thanks for the info. I solved the problem by installing "Disable Youtube™ HTML5 Player" extension since I can't do it manually on https://www.youtube.com/html5 In this way I can watch videos in HD but yea, it's always 1 more extension that you need to have.

Flash Player keeps crashing on Windows 8.1, I used Chromium Installable x64, Flash Player version is 14,0,0,179 and Chromium version is 39.0.2142.0. This happened before also, many versions ago, still not fixed.

PS: When I used Chromium Installable it fixed Chromium launch problems.

Chromium (and Chrome) now use a special flavor of Adobe Flash called 'pepper-flash' . But it is not bundled with Chromium, only with Chrome. This has been fully commented in this forum before.

I used Flash Player installer, not pepper-flash. On Windows 7 it works correctly.
