Chrome for linux? A sneak preview available and it’s bloody fast

Posted in Uncategorized with tags on May 24, 2009 by Bartosz Radaczyński

Take a look at the snapshot build of the chromium (google chrome) for linux:
http://build.chromium.org/buildbot/snapshots/chromium-rel-linux/

It is still missing the flash plugin (a major flaw), and a few other features (like the preferences) but it is REALLY fast (notice the startup time). I want this to be released, and soon!

P.S. I would also like for it to have the adblocking, but that is just my wish list ;). If I had the prefs in chromium, I’d just use the privoxy (http://stevenpratt.com/2008/09/06/google-chrome-adblock-plugin/) and be done with it, but since there is no flash plugin up till now it does not bother me that much.
