    Giving Chromium a try.


    Installed Chromium just to give another web browser a try. Been using Firefox for so long I wanted to see what all the fuss was about over Chrome/Chromium. Seems to be a blue million apps for it. Looks easy enough to get around on. Also seems very fast.
    Did some research on how to set it up to not cache anything but it seems that it's not that easy to do like Firefox where you just set the cache size to 0MB. Guess I'll figure it out though. Anyway, how many of ya'll are using Chromium vs Firefox or even both? Just wonder which you like and why?
    No matter where ya' go, there ya' are.

    I use Chromium. To me it is just like Chrome, except the occasional bug. Very fast and lots of functionality.

    I've been tweaking some of the settings to get better privacy. What are some of the cooler apps to run? I have AdBlock, what else would be good to run? In Firefox I always ran NoScript and Cookie Monster. Still wonder how to set up my cache to 0MB so it'll not write to my SSD as much.

    I run it on MX-14 and my AntiX installs. It chaps my hide on how this forum reply box treats chromium.
    I've sent PM's about to admins on contact us.
    So they are aware.

    I like the fact that mine uses pepper flash in chromium and uses 11.2 non-free in Iceweasel or Qupzilla separate like.

    I noticed that. It IS a bit harder to reply using Chromium then with Firefox. Still, I'm surprised at how many apps are in the app store and that are free. Even browser based games.

    Firefox is a bit easier to tweak and set up. It's just that I'm not sure if I like Mozilla's politics right now and would like an alternative to Firefox.

    I stopped using Chrome and Chromium about a year ago. It was getting slower and slower to load, fat pages would take forever to load and I also don't like how Google tracks every thing. At work I had to have all the browsers so using them all I went decided to go back to Firefox for my own use.

    I experienced literally the exact opposite situation. Until the web completely abandons flash player, I'm stuck with Chrome.

    Being Linux,

    I see no problem running anything from Qupzilla to Chromium.
    Choice is there.

    When I go into a topless bar. I like choice.

    Firefox,Iceweasel,Iceape,etc...................... .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ..........

    Being controlled by others in not my druthers. But sometimes. You get what you need instead of getting what you want.
