Software description

Chromium 2018 is basically a free web browsing project released initially in the year 2008. Google had intended to use this as the base project for Chrome web browser. However, since it was launched as open source browser, therefore many other developers also used its source code to develop their own web browser. This is the major reason behind similarities between Chrome and many other browsers. The product is known for its fast speed and stable performance. Many developers have played a role in enhancing its functionalities of this project because of its light weight and intuitive user interface.

Browsers Developed with Chromium:

The source code of this web project is used for the development of multiple web browsers. Since it is compatible with Windows, Linux, MacOS and Android operating systems, thus it can be used for development of browsers for any of these systems. The most popular one is Google Chrome which is the official product of Google Inc. Other famous browsers include Opera, Slimjet, Sleipnir, Torch, Comodo Dragon, SRWare Iron, Brave, Blisk and more. A few products were also using it in past but those are not active anymore. Such browsers include Titan, Flock, CoolNovo and Rockmelt.

Comparison with Chrome:

Though it is the basis of Google Chrome web browser and is similar in many ways, yet there are a few dissimilarities between both projects. Chromium is considered a more difficult browser for users because it is less stable as compared to Chrome. Moreover, it does not get updated automatically, thus you have to keep check on the release of latest version and download it manually on your PC. Whereas once Chrome is installed on a system, the user will be notified of latest releases or the latest version will be installed automatically, based on update settings of computer.

Chromium can be difficult to use for non-professional computer users, however developers and testers think of it as a blessing. As there are no symbols available, hence whenever a bug or issue is fixed it is clearer to recognize whether the targeted problem is solved or not. As compared to Windows 10 OS, Linux users usually find it more beneficial. The reason is that it is easier to find and download Chromium package and its updates. Despite its benefits and drawbacks, it cannot be decided which one is better. If complete licensed product is required then Chrome can be suitable while Chromium is suitable for free use or for further development.

The browser has various useful features. Being a small sized browser, it is considerably fast and consumes few system resources. It is quite secure too and the data sent through different channels does not face much threat of being accessed by unauthorized users. Proper documentation helps developers to acquire its code and modify it. Testers can easily create test documents and report bugs.
