Can confirm it works for OnePlus 8T on LineageOS 18.1 for microG (kebab).
Hi, How to change User Agent String for our bromite/chromium webview ??? So, any app using this webview must use that custom user agent.Welcome to the XDA home of Webview Manager by Androidacy
Read about it on our blog:
What is this?This magisk module allows to install several webviews and browsers, replacing the stock one with more privacy friendly/better performing browser and/or webview. By default this module will install Bromite.
Can I use older versions?No.
Why use different webview or default browser?These webviews are de-googled or more privacy friendly, or just more updated, or better optimized. Because it's better than Google or AOSP webview.
Why not other methods?These usually involve directly modifying system and are less versatile and more incompatible. In addition, thanks to auto updates and dynamic system detection, you know you get the right files without extra bloat.
Systemful installSystemful install is not supported and we currenly have no plans to change that.
ConfigurationConfiguration is done during install, thanks to @Zackptg5 magnificent Volume-Keys selector with a touch of our own spice.

There is this app in the play store that will let you know which webview your system is using. It has confirmed for me that although I can successfully get this module installed it never actually uses the bromite webview. I test after each release. Same thing. Looks successful but doesn't actually work as expected.Is there any way to confirm that Ungoogled Chromium Webview is installed, and not just regular Android System Webview?
I selected Ungoogled Chromium, and it downloaded and installed successfully, and all works well after a reboot. However, my ROM reports that my Webview implementation is Android System Webview. It's possibly because the file was renamed, etc., but how can I make sure?
This is the result from that app:There is this app in the play store that will let you know which webview your system is using.

Thanks, but selected Ungoogled Chromium, and it downloaded and installed successfully, and all works well after a reboot. However, my ResurrectionRemix ROM reports that my Webview implementation is Android System Webview. How can I be sure it's the UNGOOGLED webview?Check under developer options, it should say something like the following:

Also, the app to check what webview you use (from gplay) seems to report it wrongly, or it spoofs some things to look like google webview. I have the same results, i.e. no indication that bromite is in use, but apparently it is.
That thread doesn't explain anything about ungoogled chromium or bromite, which are both intended to make Android webview more private.It says Android, and not Google/Chrome, but it doesn't matter, AOSP webview tracks you the same way Google webview would (they both from Google) -- read this thread for more info:
Hi there, I’m looking for a clear explanation between all these web browser engines. AFAIK: • WebKit is developped by Apple - open source • AOSP webview aka Blink - open source - based on WebKit • Google webview: fork of AOSP with proprietary stuff • Gecko: supports open Internet...forum.f-droid.org
And I just said that 1) bromite doesn't work for me with some apps - I have used it before; and 2) I'm using ungoogled chromium - not aosp (which, by the way, has little to do with webview); and 3) dev options doesn't indicate whether it's regular Android system WebView or ungoogled chromium WebView.
