Chromium Review

The free and open source browser put together by Google


A review of Chromium by Fernando Ortega

The technology behind Google Chrome is from the open source project called "Chromium" which has also facilitated the creation of derivative browsers such as SRWare Iron, Comodo Dragon and even Opera's new-generation browser is based off of Chromium.

The market for such browsers is mixed and many die-hard Firefox fans refuse to abandon ship from an open source community-based browser (from Mozilla) to a corporately-managed product like Google Chrome.

Chromium provides an experience that is finely tuned to work in unison with Google-owned properties and especially Google's own search engine. In fact, their search engine still advertises Google Chrome to users searching from rival browsers like Firefox and Internet Explorer.

In the end, Chromium is not for everybody and its minimalist interface may take some getting used to. On the other hand, it's great for heavy Google users that wish to synchronize their Google experience across multiple devices such as desktops, notebooks and mobile phones powered by Android.
