Browsing works great, thanks a lot.

I have a problem though syncing bookmarks. Does it work for you guys? I can connect to an account but always get a red error message telling me there are currently sync problems. Tried that on my note3 and with other accounts as well but without success.

Sync API is not supported on third party Chromium distributions. This is Googles decision to block access.

"Unfortunately, Chromium application was stopped." :( Android 5.1

Try the 20170205 build.

I just switched to chomium after Firefox, Opera Mini and the build-in browser gave me problems under 6.0.1 on my p4wife 7510 tab.
Works like a charm and it's fast! Thanks a lot!

Thanks for your work. It's the best browser for Tegra2 devices. Is it possible to create an Android 4.0.4 APK as I went back to the stock ICS firmware? Thanks!

I've compiled a Bromite version of Chromium. See their website for the list of features.

This one is working nicely on a Galaxy Tab 10.1 wifi updated with the 7.1.2 AOSP Nougat. I updated from linux laptop with heimdal to install twrp, then from twrp to install custom ROM. I'll be trying your 8.0 Oreo someday.

I couldn't install the previous builds, I tried a few one up to build 65, verified the md5, etc... Got error "Can't open file" when launching the apk from the downloads app... Maybe I did something wrong, as I'm new to alternative android ROMs.

Is there an index wich lists those specific tegra2 apps somewhere ? I found a few with search, but no centralized list.

So thanks a lot, keep up the good work !

Seems to work very nice! Thank you.

Is there any chance we can use it as WebView too? I would like to use a Fullscreen Browser App on my Tab for my Homeautomation System.

The recent versions of Chromium don't work. There's some issue that doesn't render the page. So that will be end of these browser releases.

@lanwin: there isn't a way to use a custom webview. The only browsers that can work as webview are the ones that Google releases on Play store but those aren't compatible with non-NEON devices.

    I've found a way to make it work so this is alive again.

    There are two patches of the bromite build which aren't compiling so they aren't included:
    Code:
    BRM045_Remove-help-menu-item.patch
    BRM050_Canvas-fingerprinting-mitigations-for-image-data-and-webGL.patch
