Care to elaborate? ROM, installation method(s), etc. No information included for folks to comment on.


Moto G5S Plus XT1806, Validus 8.1.0, microG-NanoDroid, MultiROM, XDA Legacy

The current webview is not compatible with SDK 29 (when I install it as a system app it does not give me the option to select it as the default webview). I have tried to install with 3 methods(1.TWRP copy and paste webview file to /system/app and then install the apk/2.using root and a file manager using a similar copy and paste technique as the previous/3.made a flashable zip) into 3 different roms(Pixel Experience/NitrogenOS/KrakenOS).

I read in the nanodroid thread that webview on Android 10 may need to be installed into /system/product/app

Guys, I just updated to the latest version but the push notifications of the websites still don't work for me.

It is very important, I need them. Can you see this topic?

@csagan5, the layest build (arm64chrome build) crashed if i open Home in its settings. Vanilla chromium latest build is also crashed if i open setting, it also happened in v77.x.x.x.104 build. And one more, does bromite would delete all of my data/file that i downloaded through bromite that saved in download folder?

Is there any plan to make #enable-site-per-process enabled by default? Probably many people don't even know what it is so having it enabled would be a nice security improvement. If you want to read more about it https://www.chromium.org/Home/chromium-security/site-isolation.
It's enabled on high memory devices by default. You can check on your device by typing chrome://process-internals/#general

It is fixed useragent which conceals real browser version and it is one of bromite's feature.

more info
https://github.com/bromite/bromite/blob/master/build/patches/User-Agent-anonymize.patch

Yes, the reported user agent version is updated from time to time to match a common one.

The upstream bug report for this issue was https://github.com/bromite/bromite/issues/201 please read there about my findindgs back then.

If there is some functionality that works with Chromium but not with Bromite, then it means it is related to the Play Store integration, which Bromite removes. Feel free to investigate on that.

It's there any option to enable the autofill framework from Android?
Same here, only Play Store and cloud integrations are disabled.

For anyone who used DoH for safety surfing on the internet, this must be a sad info for you https://www.zdnet.com/article/dns-over-https-causes-more-problems-than-it-solves-experts-say/

This article is FUD; there is really not much to say about DoH.

I will make a summary:
  • DoH is better than cleartext DNS
  • DoT is also better than cleartext DNS
  • sending all your DNS queries to a central DNS (Google, Cloudflare etc) might be bad

So we can argue for long about the last point (central DNSes which you might already be using with 8.8.8.8/8.8.4.4/1.1.1.1 etc), but no one is forcing you to use them, and at least now you have a (limited) choice. There is just currently little choice because there are not many reputable public DoH endpoints available.

But I do not accept refusing the first two facts with concerns like "enterprise/home routers/ISP cannot inspect/change my DNS requests anymore now". That's the whole point; by following that reasoning we should all rollback to HTTP and disable TLS now.

I'd like to make this my default browser,
is there a way to enable dark mode and a whole black interface (like in kiwi e.g.)? Thx
You can enable dark mode for web contents by typing
chrome://flags/#enable-force-dark

For dark ui type the following in the address bar and enable it.
chrome://flags/#enable-android-night-mode
