Chromium for Android

I always wanted this one, but never knew that it existed. Thanks to François Beaufort, I now have Chromium installed and working on my Android phone.

What is Chromium?

Chromium is the open-source web browser project from which Google Chrome draws its source code.[3] The browsers share the majority of code and features, though there are some minor differences in features and they have different licensing.

Why is attractive to me?

Okay, Chromium is not for daily use. It is where the Chrome’s code goes for the first level of compiling, testing and experimenting. There are daily builds, most of the times MANY builds during the day. For me, (and many other interested folks) this is the best place to look for new features coming to Chrome. Things are often introduced here first, tested, and moved to Chrome gradually. To write Chrome Story and to bring you news about upcoming features, this is a regular activity that I do on my Windows computer. (Try chromium often and follow François Beaufort, you are pretty much ready to start your own Chrome related blog 😉 )

Where Do I Download This?

Here, use this easy tool: Chromium Downloads. Again, this is HIGHLY experimental and not suggested for daily use.

Now, I am off tot esting something cool I found on this new Chromium build. See you soon!
