to add google as search engine go to chrome://settings/searchEngines, in search shortcuts add - search engine: google; shortcut: (or any other, for example g); URL with %s in place of query: {google:baseURL}search?q=%s&{google:RLZ}{google:originalQueryForSuggestion}{google:assistedQueryStats}{google:searchFieldtrialParameter}{google:iOSSearchLanguage}{google:searchClient}{google:sourceId}{google:contextualSearchVersion}ie={inputEncoding}. Click on the ellipsis and select "Make default"

Unacceptable that one can't set Google as the standard search engine. I removed it for that reason and installed Chrome instead.

Responde y se integra mucho mejor que Brave con el plugin "uBlock Origin"

Free software and nice UI. Even though I would like a GTK-based browser even more, but only if it's not barebones like Epiphany. Also very ahead of other browsers supporting all the latest web platform features.

Очень жаль что синхронизация устройств больше не поддерживается... в остальном отличный бразер

I use Chromium as my secondary browser because it is lean and fast and handles the browser based meeting clients that other browsers may not. It works well for GotoMeeting, Teams, Webx, ZOHO and other meeting cilents. Chrome worked fine but it occassionaly had issues being updated and was that heavy, slower full featured browser. But sometimes you just need a simple, fast and functional.

Yeah, it's fine. A bare-bones Chrome open source alternative. Only use it on Linux for google products in hope that fingerprinting doesn't follow my browsing about on any other site.

Great browser, really fast. The fastest so far.

It's a decent, fast and simple browser, but Google decided in early 2021 that they wanted to handicap the free Chromium browser by not letting it sync with Google servers, so that's a no go now. Firefox is better.

The default firefox ran slow and crashed on my mid-2010 macbook. I installed chromium and there was a huge speed and stability improvement.

Bei der Linux Mint 20. 2 Version funktioniert die Synchronisierung mit Google nicht mehr, ich werde zu Chromium zurückkehren, wenn die Synchronisierung wieder ordnungsgemäß funktioniert.

It's kinda light and fast but the sync with google is broken. Will go back to Chromium when the sync is back and work properly

Oh how the mighty have fallen. As other have pointed out, the integration with Google is broken. The plugin handling feels broken in that it adds clicks between you and using any extension you install. The new tab screen I experienced also adds clicks between you and whatever page you wish to use and attempting to use the address bar to search (which is a common feature these days) resulted in an error page every time. Nope. I'll stick to Firefox and Vivaldi. Chromium might be fast, too bad it isn't usable.

My chromium works so fine in my hp x630 laptop. I use chromuim as my main browser for my job because i am part of vaccination team in the philippines and i really like this browser. Anyway this is my first time as linux user i am definitely in whole new computing backround.

Could be a great browser, but there's some issues

The only problem with chromium is that the startup class is incorrect within the .desktop file. In /usr/share/applications/chromium-browser.desktop the line for StartupWMClass should be 'StartupWMClass=chromium-browser' not just chomium. This causes icons to be blurry within plank among a host of other issues. While minor, it's crazy that this hasn't been fixed.
