This is a custom build of Code Aurora's Chromium for Snapdragon. This build aims to deploy the stock Chromium SWE with only few additions. For now the only additions to the browser are: custom icon, custom name, adblock, more search engines. I also wrote an updater app that will search for new builds once a day, and will notify if one is found.

Links to build and updater app:
Auto updater app
Auto updater app source code
Chromium SWE Builds

Update: F-Droid
The app is now available on F-Droid.
Please bear in mind that F-Droid builds its version of the app using its own keys for signing. This means that my build of the app isn't compatible with theirs, and if you want to switch from one to the other you'll need to uninstall first.

UPDATE: version 1.4.1
The auto updater app has been updated, you can download it from the link above (the link has been updated).
This update corrects a major bug in the app.
Version 1.4.1 changelog

This is going to be the last update for the auto-updater app. From now on you are going to receive only new Chromium SWE builds.
I'll release a new version of the auto-updater app only if bugs will be found or if i accept to add a new requested feature.
To report a bug you can open an issue on the github repo of the app (link above), for new features you can post on this thread.

Hope you will update frequently

AFAIK Google does not permit sync with their accounts to third party apps anymore.

Do you plan to release the source code of your modded browser?
