    Default Is Chromium faster than Google Chrome?

    It seems to me that the open source Chromium beats the hell out of Chrome. Just tested it and noticed the difference. What do you think?

    Installed Chromium to have a look.

    When I launched Chromium, I was asked to enter a password for KWallet.

    Firefox doesn't do this, so Chromium has been rapidly uninstalled

    Well, to me it never mattered in any way.
    But Chromium is the opensource/free version and as such i prefer this one.
    Chrome on the other hand is not opensource.

    On windows its even more problematic since you have to build chromium
    yourself. On openSUSE its build for you which is kinda nice.

    Still if Chrome, than chromium for me.

    Chrome is just Chromium with Google's enhancements. The opensourced core is Chromium.

    Unhappy Re: Is Chromium faster than Google Chrome?

    So I installed Google Chrome, downloaded from Google and it is faster at loading web sites, but it is not as compatible with some sites and/or has a lack of compatible plug-ins when compared to Firefox. If fast is all your want, Chrome leaves out enough stuff to be faster, but it is not as dependable as Firefox. It is fun to play with, but I end up falling back to Firefox most every time.

    Actually it's not true that Chrome/Chromium is faster because they "leave out stuff". It's because they use a different rendering technology underneath, Webkit from Apple (which is opensource) to be exact. Which is why sometimes Chrome shows up on web server stats as Safari.

    I use both FF and Chrome in parallel and in the early days Chrome had annoying issues, but these days my usage mix is probably 80 Chrome 20 FF. The main annoyance for me is that it creates PDFs in Letter size when we use A4 here.

    None the less, for me, Chrome has not been better and while competition is good, it is not advantageous for us to abandon Firefox for Chrome in my opinion. So, I suggest a continue support of Firefox in openSUSE and as always report any issues you find in either browser.
