Download Chromium for Ubuntu

Chromium Official New LogoChromium Browser for Ubuntu

Hello everyone, you can finally download Chromium for Ubuntu and experience one of the best web browsers for Linux, period. I have personally been a fan of Chromium since I first tried it some 4 years ago on my Ubuntu laptop. This is one Google’s best projects ever, it is open source while Google makes sure Chromium lasts as they provide the funding etc. The cool thing about Chromium for Ubuntu is that it is now available to download as a SNAP app! So you literally just need one click and it’s installed, the links are below.

Today we will highlight some reasons why you should try the Chromium web browser on your Ubuntu desktop or laptop. Like I mentioned, Chromium is free and open source so you get the bonus of getting updates from the large community and the perks of getting security fixes and new features by Google employees themselves. It is basically like Chrome for Ubuntu but it is more community driven so some features will of course be different. In my option, I have also experienced Chromium to be less feature rich but at the same time, it runs smoother on my older Linux machines that I use for testing different stuff. Let me know in the comments what you think. Chromium or Chrome?(I mostly use Chrome in 99% of my devices).

What Is 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. Google is the primary backer of Chromium, it kicked off the project when it launched Chrome in September 2008 but because the code is open-source, others, including people not employed by Google, contribute to the Chromium project.
