Here is the problem to me... 

To fully enable Chormium, the features that make it worth installing

- you have to use a Google account. Same with Firefox - you have to
register. 

I am pretty sure you can have your own Firefox Cloud. Some guy from the Slackware team wrote an article about setting your own. It is not trivial but it is doable.

I myself don't want features in my browser, other than being able to browse sites. I want no History nor password management nor settings management.

One advantage chromium/chrome has over FF is GPU support. i have never had that work right, on any platform.

Not for long. Google just announced that they're only going to allow Chrome Sync or whatever they call it from Genuine Full-Spyware Google Chrome Browser.
I don't know what else will or will not work, but it signals that they're going to work harder to keep Chrome users on the plantation.

Personally I don't care because if you're using a privacy focused browser you'd be insane to then go and tether it right back to Google. All I care about is that third-party extensions continue to work.

The timing for an announcement like this is interesting.

Well darn, blows chromium on my ARM boards from doing a sync.  as far as i know, 'real' chrome does not exist.

That will have to change with Apple tho. and MS-ARM, Might filter down to Linux people too i guess.

 

Sure there are times i dont want invasive tools anywhere near me, but other times, they can be convenient.   Its all about use case, and common sense.

Chrome browser totally exists for ARM.  What do you think all those Chromebooks are running?

Odd, my reply got eaten.

 

I agree on that statement, but that is ChromeOS, not "generic" Linux, which runs on those SBC ARM boards. I wasn't clear enough on what i was meaning, sorry about that.

"Refusing to post empty message"

Will flash up across the banner in blue text when you hit post when this happens - and it has been happening on my BBS too, the last few days.

In this case it was my fault, as yet again i did a simple reply in thunderbird.  So it was user error.

So it is. I suppose you would be limited to Chromium then.

And nothing of value was lost :)
