My thoughts on Slackware, life and everything

Chromium (also ungoogled) now at version 112

Last week the Chromium source code major version was upped to 112. According to the developer blog, this release addresses 16 security issues, none of them critical. Nevertheless, better safe than sorry, so the Slackware packages (15.0 and -current) for Chromium are now ready for downloading from my repository or any of its mirrors. Likewise chromium-ungoogled.

The regular as well as the Un-googled Chromium browser is now at version 112.0.5615.49.
Let’s see what version 113 brings next month – it should have enabled WebGPU by default on ChromeOS even though the Linux builds of Chrome seem to have to wait a bit longer. I wonder if it’s just compile options that I could try to exploit for my Chromium build. I am also curious to see where WebGPU is going to be used in 3D-rendered web applications.

Enjoy! Eric

    Following up on a discussion on IRC about spell-checker in chromium-ungoogled. By default, spell-checking does not work even though it is enabled in the browser settings by default.
    It seems that Chromium downloads dictionaries on-demand into your user profile. The un-googled version can not do that because the Google URL which is hard-coded in the browser source gets “ungoogled” along with everything else that connects to Google.
    But, you can download the required spell-checker dictionaries yourself and copy them into your chromium-ungoogled user profile (${HOME}/.config/chromium-ungoogled/Dictionaries/)

    See for a discussion with Eloston and some nice scripts and one-liner commands to download one or more spell-checker dictionaries for chromium-ungoogled.
