    what do you guys think about this project? :question:

    i always assumed using chromium that i am using something that is free of googles eyes but i guess not. cant wait until this is ported in to Arch. maybe it will make its way in to the antergos repo after a while ;)

  • @megaman I have looked at it and discussed it with some friends. see here: http://www.ghacks.net/2016/10/05/ungoogled-chromium-removes-google-traces-from-chromium/
    My concern is that it appears to be a young, solo project and the sole contributor admits to having little time for the project.

    Have you considered Slimjet or Brave? Is your concern over Chromium referenced to this: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=786909 ?

  • I think that in Antergos it should be necessarily, at least to me it is not interesting (because services Google are interesting to me and I do not need privacy).

  • @Orlet no doubt its a new project and need to see how it catches on over time.

    i have heard of slimjet and brave havent tried them out yet.

    really chromium is my favorite browser but i just dont like how google its services in to the browser. im trying to get away from google. if you are a heavy google user its not an issue but i would like chromium not calling home to the mothership.

    if this project can take off i think it would be great to have a truly open source chromium.

  • “really chromium is my favorite browser but i just dont like how google its services in to the browser. im trying to get away from google.”

    I could have written this…I agree 100%. I’d love a Google free Chromium. I tried Slimjet on Netrunner 17(Kubuntu 15.10) and it did not perform well. I wish the new project well and hope others pitch in over time. In reference to Brave, everyone I know that has tried it loves it.
    So, I may try Brave soon and see for myself.

    Anyway, if you end up trying Brave or the ungoogled-chromium project please do share your experience.

  • @Orlet im trying out brave right now. seems to be very interesting. i like its based on chromium. just to let others know brave is in the antergos repo for easy installing if you want to check it out also.

    There comes Firefox, then. Personally, I m quite happy with the lean, snappy Epiphany (Web) as my main browser and in case I need any features that Epiphany misses, I switch to FF.
    ***"Google free Chromium sounds like an …Arch free Antergos to me!

  • I really like Qupzilla, its quite lean but works well. I’ve known for sometime Chromium “leaks” to Google but it is such a great browser I’m willing to wait until something better comes. I like how Chromium/Kmail integrate visually with Plasma than FF/T-bird.

    @megaman I guess I’ll be trying Brave–wow, it’s in the repos. I’m rapidly converting to a full on Antergos(Arch) fan. :smiley:

  • @anarch im a big firefox fan but its gotten slower over the years. hopefully its new browser engine they are working on will get it back to the top again.

    i do like some of smaller browsers but end up missing extensions and addon selection that firefox and chrome provide.

  • playing around with brave for a while i gotta say its looks good. lots of interesting features.

    ill keep it around and keep testing it.

  • I’ve also installed Brave. I understand why others using it like it so much. I’ll test it for a while and post what I find.
