UnGoogled Chromium Portable, a Chromium variant for removing Google integration and enhancing privacy, control, and transparency!
"It basically is Google Chrome without any background communications with Google servers. ... However there are some drawbacks of total disintegration of Google too. The Safe Browsing feature of Google Chrome cant be used... You won’t be able to use Google’s flash player and as a result you will have to use Adobe Flash player. You wont be able to directly add extensions and apps from Chrome Web Store." —Abhishek Raj, ILoveFreeSoftware.com (October 6, 2016)
"there is no question that ungoogled-chromium does substantially more to guard your privateness than related jobs. And it has other tweaks you may possibly like, far too, together with disabling onbeforeunload activities (no more frustrating dialog boxes which appear when a website page is remaining shut) and forcing all pop-ups into tabs." —Mike Williams, betanews.com (2016/10/05)
"There is a misconception however that Chromium is completely free from Google's grasp as Google is the major contributor to Chromium's code. ... The project will certainly be of interest to the privacy-conscious crowd who prefer not to use Google services or even Chromium. One question that only time will tell is if the team will be able to keep up with producing new versions of the custom Chromium version." —Martin Brinkmann, ghacks.net (October 5, 2016)
A Google Chromium variant for removing Google integration and enhancing privacy, control, and transparency
   A number of features or background services communicate with Google servers despite the absence of an associated Google account or compiled-in Google API keys.
   Furthermore, the normal build process for Chromium involves running Google's own high-level commands that invoke many scripts and utilities, some of which download and use pre-built binaries provided by Google.
   Even the final build output includes some pre-built binaries. Fortunately, the source code is available for everything.
