Chromium

Chromium

Chromium is an open-source browser project that aims to build a safer, faster, and more stable way for all Internet users to experience the web. Chromium is the open-source project behind Google Chrome.

One of the major aims of the project is for Chrome to be a tabbed window manager, or shell for the web, as opposed to it being a traditional browser application.

Whilst Chromium is still in its early development phase, it is shaping up very nicely. It opens web pages at lightning speed. Its sleek design gives users more room to browse their favorite sites.

 Chromium 37.0.1995.2
