Chromium (Google Chrome) on Linux

Postby Old Marcus » Wed Aug 12, 2009 2:31 pm

Thought I ought to start a discussion, since it is now getting pretty substantial. Visually, the last few releases have vastly improved it with GTK integration and themes available from the Chrome theme site. It is also a lot more stable, and I have not had problems with basic Youtube flash playing. The most recent crash I got was exiting from the options screen, but it only happened once. :S

Your thoughts? I'm still keeping Swiftfox (Firefox) as my default, but Chrome for Linux is looking pretty neat now, although the GTK theme could do with less green.
Linux Mint 8 RC1 = Nice
'apt install' can be used on Linux Mint as a shortcut for 'sudo apt-get install'. 'apt x' can be used for various other apt commands as well.
When a problem is solved, please add [SOLVED] to your thread title.

I have been using the newer Chromium for Linux.
I was using Google-Chrome browser when I still had vista.

I have not had any real problems with Chromium.
I have changed the colour theme and added a couple of plug-ins.
Added Flash and their version of GreaseMonkey, with no problems so far.

For speed (stupid fast) and ease of use, I haven't found a better browser.
I is my first choice of browsers, but I still use FireFox 3.0.
FireFox 3.0 is way better than 3.5

I'm using Chromium now!! :mrgreen:
