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.
A lot faster and lighter than firefox
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.
not saving passwords & can not display or edit passwords
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.
I like it. It's a cool open source browser.
I'm not able to sync the browser (bookmarks, passwords, etc) with my google account. I'm using Chromium version 90.0.4430.212 (Versão oficial) for Linux Mint 64 bits, and Linux Mint 20.1 Cinnamon
As of 5-25-2021, I have installed chromium:amd64 90.0.4430.212~linuxmint1+ulyssa and the sync functionality is working perfectly for multiple accounts. I think the other users here have PEBKAC. And BTW, perhaps they need to update the default search engine as well since Mint likes Yahoo! over Google. (Guess it pays the bills!)
It's suitable as a webbrowser, but the snychronization with any google account doesn't work. Without that function, there are some webbrowers with some important advances.
Usaba Firefox, solo que había algunas opciones que no me dejaban usar algunos servicios, y en vez de instalar google chrome, preferí instalar Chromium, la verdad, fué una gran decisión. Gracias Linux Mint por no ser como Ubuntu XD
It's not a bad browser, but Brave is way better for linux in my opinion.
Worked fine in Linux Mint 19.3 but hangs and freezes in Linux mint 20.1. Any suggestions?
Gracias a todo el equipo de mint que hizo posible tener chromium.
Это самый крутой браузер для Linux.
The display is all messed up and redrawing itself in broken triangles, chrome has the same problem. Had to go back 5 different versions. All other gui programs works.
Best web browser. Working perfect on Mint 20 now!!
Don't use this *.deb, better to install it using "snap" package. In this case Chromium works perfect.
There are problems to run it on Linux Mint 20 Cinnammon .Hope to resolve this quickly.
I am impressed with the consideration but when I use Frefox for the link to explain/instruct, I get this warning: "Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.linuxmint-user-guide.readthedocs.io because this website requires a secure connection. What can you do about it? www.linuxmint-user-guide.readthedocs.io has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely.
