thumbapps.org Chromium, Portable Edition
Lightweight (cognitively and physically) and fast browser...
thumbapps.org (ta.o) is pleased to announce the release of Chromium, Portable Edition. It's the Chromium unGoogled development browser bundled with a PortableApps.com launcher as a portable app, so you can take your browser, bookmarks, and most settings on the go.
   It's open source and free for personal and business use.
   Chromium Portable Edition is available both in 32 bit mode and a dual-mode 32 bit and 64 bit app, so you can save space or enjoy 64 bit performance whenever you go.
   It's also packed with the latest Adobe Flash Player plugin portable.

Features

thumbapps.org Chromium, Portable Edition Chromium's features include:
    • only open-source licenses
    • a blue-colored logo
    • the similar system requirements as Google Chrome
    • the similar user interface and settings as Google Chrome
    • the similar support for extensions and themes as Google Chrome
    • no unwanted software protection (known as Chrome Cleanup and "software_reporter_tool.exe"), on Windows
    • without Google integration and enhanced privacy, based on the "ungoogled-chromium" project of Eloston
    • compiled with the enabled Widevine plugin. It is able to play DRM content (on Netflix, for example)
    • compiled with all audio/video codecs (AV1, H.265, H.264, MPEG-4, MP3, FLAC, AAC, AMR...)
    • without defined Google API keys. So Google services (like Sync, Hotword, Translate, Now, Hangout...) do not work. You will not be able to synchronize your data (except if you create your own Google API keys). However, you will be able to sign-in to your Google account after a simple setting : Disable "Allow Chromium sign-in" in the chrome://settings options (screenshot) and go to google.com to sign-in
    • "Secure Preferences" feature which protect user data against malware
    • PepperFlash (PPAPI) is the unique plugin for Chromium. PepperFlash is secure because it works in a sandbox. In short, it executes in its own process, separate from the browser's rendering engine.
