I have been using midori full time as my browser for a while now. The latest release of the Chromium browser looked interesting, so I decided to run it for a few days and see how it worked. Read on for a review.
Chromium turns out to be easy and install and play with on Fedora at least. Tom “spot” Callaway provides a yum repo with non official builds for fedora at: http://spot.fedorapeople.org/chromium/, simply add a yum repository based on this, or manually download and install the packages for your Fedora version.
Things I like about chromium:
Things I don't like:
Memory usage seems pretty good, especially against firefox. It's hard to get exact numbers as chromium spreads things out into their own threads. My current parent process has been up around a day or so and everything is still quite responsive.
All in all, I think I will at least keep using chromium for a few more days and see if it sticks. I still like midori a lot, but chromium is pretty good so far too.comments powered by Disqus
