"chromium is my favourite web browser"

What do you like best?

Chromium is my favourite 100% of my internet time browser. Despite it is very popular worldwide it was my favourite web browser long before it; using it as web IDE / testing / development tool also.

I am currently using latest development build for linux x64 directly updating from chromium developers site and with custom bash wrapper with plenty commandline flags to fine-tune and optimize for browser experience and development pusrposes.

Chromium supports all latest tecnlogies and standards, it is important for those who expect "something new" every day. Chromium is extremely secure to even forget about browser security issues with web-sites and content, some additional settings and filters are applied by extensions.

What do you dislike?

I think high RAM consumption is a small disadvantage, especially along with flash videos, but as soon as flash will be deprecated it is not a problem.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just use chromium. It has tons of features.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

1. full stack development with chrome devloper tools

2. access to advanced technologies like webvr, webgl, webrtc, html5

"Great browser, specially for developers"

What do you like best?

- The loading speed

- The extra privacy it offers (less data sent to 3rd parties)

- The extra speed it offers, due to less bloatware

- The fact that the upcoming core browser features usually comes to chromium first, rather than chrome

- The development tools

- The ability to create workspaces, which allows me to work on my project right inside the browser, where they are intended to be used)

- The cache's behavior

- The stability is relatively good, considering we are talking about a browser version that most of the time is a nightly build

- The tooling it provides for performance optimization / analytics

- The lack of excessive branding

What do you dislike?

- The fact that even though it supports most of the Chrome's functionality and commodities

- The update process can sometimes turn out to be pretty tedious

- The instability (on Windows / Mac)

- The sync ability

- The lack of AAC, MP3 and H.264 support

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are either concerned about your privacy, or want to use a a great development browser that does not require any kind of installation, you can be sure that chromium will fit the bill, specially if you're using linux.

However, If you are either using Windows, or are in need for a browser which you also intend to use for entertainment purposes, I would not recommend it. With all that said, please keep in mind that Chromium does not want to be the same as Chrome. Chrome is basically an enhanced, friendlier version of Chromium.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- I am mainly using chromium whenever I need to get something done quickly, and I find myself in need of a good browser, with good support for the latest standards

"If you value privacy over experience, Chromium is for you"

What do you like best?

Chromium shares the same DNA as Google Chrome, which means that the browsing experience is very similar (both browsers use the same rendering engine and the same JavaScript engine), while privacy concerns are mostly addressed due to the lack of activity tracking.

What do you dislike?

Privacy comes at a price. No automatic updates (unless you're running Linux), and no automated updates for Flash. On top of that, not all plugins work. With a bit of digging around, you can get it to the same level of versatility as its younger brother, but that requires time and effort.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Chromium is a good browser. If you value privacy and don't mind encountering the odd plugin required/not supported issue, I strongly recommend using it as your daily browser, especially if you're using Linux. For Windows/OSX the experience is a little poorer, but still completely serviceable.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm able to do all the work I need to do online with Chromium. A web browser is something you don't really notice, unless it's bad, and Chromium is definitely not bad. I can browse the web, use all sorts of web apps without even thinking about it. And even though I'm not terribly worried about privacy, it's good to know an extra layer is there.

"Google Chrome Quickly Overtook Firefox and Definitely Internet Explorer as the Go-To Browser For All"

What do you like best?

Google Chrome's (Chromium's) speed and security prove unrivaled compared to the other "majors" like Internet Explorer and Firefox. Moreover, the ecosystem of plugins, extensions, and themes is far superior to other web browsers. This truly is a browser that can appeal to the most casual Internet user, all the way to a professional developer.

What do you dislike?

Not much to dislike. It doesn't come pre-installed on every computer, so there's that.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just use it. There's no competing web browser that is nearly as good.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it for personal browsing and business "browsing" along with the primary tool when I develop websites. It's very quick development policy on adopting the newest browser standards and being standards-compliant allows me to also use these standards when developing web applications.

"Very simple. Very powerful"

What do you like best?

Has the power of Chrome behind it. The way Chrome/chromium has been architected mean it should be very stable and quick. - in test the is very true. great OS. However still needs a lot more to be used for heavy business use

What do you dislike?

If you have many tabs open it slows down massively.

Also If you don't have an internet connection there isn't much you can do.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have it on your machine keep with it.

I cannot see using it on a big powerful desktop
