google chrome vs chromium — 11 Comments

  1. hi, nice blog
    Your Blog is More interesting.great work.:)
    moreover, …if possible at ur free time visit mine..and give ur suggestion to improve..
    if possible add me in your blog roll. i will return my favour!!

  2. Thanks for the quick review. I use Firefox as my main browser, however as a webmaster, I have to design for multiple browsers to make sure things work in all browsers.

  3. Licensing: the chrome EULA went something like:

    By submitting, posting or displaying the content you give Google a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, adapt, modify, translate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute any Content which you submit, post or display on or through, the Services

    ie anything you write over the net using chrome, becomes the property of Google… to do with as they please.

    They have now appropriately altered the offending bits.

  4. That seems a bit extreme, do they own it while it’s in transit or just anything inputted through that framework even if it falls to rest on hardware outside of their jusisdiction?

    Sound very far fetched to me and the only reason I can rationally conclude for it is having gone to release with a draft terms and conditions which have since been revised or they are extending some form of legal indemnity on the data to cover any possible abuse of their services.

  5. While you may not notice any speed difference between Google Chrome and Chromium, but you will notice a speed difference between the two if your system is running very very low in memory. Chromium will load a page quicker than Google Chrome in this situation, and I just don’t know why. I haven’t seen anyone mentioned about this point on the Internet so far … that’s weird.

  6. Two differences I see in their performance:
    – Chrome works with html5 video; chromium doesn’t yet
    – Adding Chrome to my ubuntu installation results in lloonngggg wait times for the repositories to load.

    Does anyone know if there are any pitfalls to installing both?

  7. Update / Correction:
    – Chromium *does* work with html5 videos
    – the auto-translate option is smoother on Chrome than on Chromium
