I have been using Chromium web browser for some time now , and I must say it is really good , and most of the time its pretty stable , but one thing I really hate is that it saves my user profile at
Now to solve this I tried many techniques , and I found out that the most simplest and easiest solution was the best , so here it is .
I recently decided to get rid of branding in my current favorite web browser ,Google chrome ….. so I visited the chromium project website .Nowhere on the page could i find an option to download chromium binaries , all that was available was source code and instructions on how to build it for different platforms .
Then after some 15 mins of searching i found this, the list of latest chromium snapshots .
so to download the latest build open the folder with the highest number , and download the file called
after downloading the file its pretty simple , just install it and you are ready to Go!
For those who don’t already Know Chromium browser is the same as Google chrome but without the Google branding , Also Chromium is Open Source .
Be advised the latest versions of chromium are beta version and they might be unstable .
Update:New Snapshots are released Almost daily , and there is no auto updater present in chromium, so make sure you manually update as often as possible.
I’ve Always been a fan of google chrome ever since it released , but i could never let go of my Firefox fixation.
The main reason Firefox was so good was because of the extensions .
When chrome got extensions I immediately switched google chrome and put Firefox as secondary .
But there was still few things that bothered me about chrome ,
2.You can’t install chrome where ever you want , it always installs in “C:\Users\%UserName%\AppData\Local\”
The first one didn’t bother me much cause I could easily remove it ,
but the second one really bothered me .
So i switched to Portable Google chrome .
Then I stumble across this article , Now I am rethinking google chrome usage !
Now its up to you to decide whether to use Google chrome or not .
Update : I’ve stopped using Chrome and switched to Chromium.
