The following guide provides you with a list of download links for Google Chrome, Chromium, and third-party Chromium-based browsers.

I recently tried to download the latest version of the open source version of the Google browser called Chromium. A search on the Internet did not reveal a website with a download location in the first results. The only thing that came up was the build server of the Chromium project which listed all the builds of the web browser for download.

The Chromium website does not list a Chromium download link on its first pages, only one for Google Chrome, the web browser that is maintained by Google and that is based on the same code base.

If you want to download Google Chrome you can simply visit the Google Chrome homepage and download the latest version of the official Google browser from there.

Users who want to download Chromium on the other hand can do so by visiting the Chromium build server which lists downloads of the latest Chromium builds for both Windows and Linux.

A better alternative for downloading Chromium is this website which lists the latest binary downloads right away.

The main advantage of Chromium is that developers can build their own web browsers. Companies like Codeweavers or SRWare have created such builds which provide enhancements like support for Apple Macintosh systems or better privacy protection.

Also, it works in most respects similarly to Google Chrome, but without Google specific features.

Here is a list of all the Google browser download possibilities:

Third-party Chromium-based browsers

Do you know of any additional Chromium builds that should be mentioned on this page?

Please note the following: Not all builds listed on this page are official builds. Only Google Chrome and Chromium builds are official, while all remaining builds are third-party builds. While that is usually not a problem, you should keep that in the back of your head.

The official Chromium download link has been improved recently. The new page links to the most recent download at all times, so that you do not need to browse the build server anymore to find the most recent release of the browser.

Chromium ships without feature to update the browser automatically. You may want to check out our Chromium Updater overview for Windows, which lists programs that you can run on your system to keep Chromium up to date.

    This article is very misleading. Chromium web browser was not developed by or for google.
    It is an open source project which google added it’s name to and tracking ability that watchs everything you search for to give you personalised google ads.
    Google has no interest in making the browser any better as far as i can determine. I have emailed them several times about several large problems with no reply and the problems still not fixed.

    Your list of google browser downloads is actually a list of chromium browser downloads.

    I’ve tried Google Chrome four times and am ready to remove it again. It crashes and simply isn’t stable enough for me. I’ll stick with Avant and IE8.

    does chromium work on mac os x 10.4.11?

    1. Martin said on July 1, 2010 at 7:32 am

      The requirements are Intel CPU; Mac OS X 10.5.6 or later., so I’m afraid no.
