Chromium, regular and un-googled.
The updated Slackware 15.0 and -current packages both for chromium and chromium-ungoogled are available in my repository and its mirrors (like my own US server and in a short while, the UK mirror). Be sure to upgrade at your earliest convenience.
I still get the occasional question “what is this un-googled chromium“? I wrote two articles about it on the blog a while ago: “How to un-google your Chromium browser experience” and “Sync and share your (Chromium and more) browser data among all your computers“. Check those out!
Installing thanks 🙂
Posting from chromium-ungoogled-112.0.5615.121-x86_64-1alien and everything is working for me.
Thanks also for the chromium-ungoogled links — it’s always nice to review things ‘I think I know and understand’ 🙂
(Update available for Chromium 112 to address zero-day exploit)
Alien Bob way below March 4, 2021 is an excellent read at the below link referencing the Chromium browser. Very important edits. Learn them…
— Note from alienBOB: Lots of text removed that was copied from an older blog article—-
Dear ‘Shutdown CNN’, you already pasted a complete ”slackpkgplus.conf’ file into a blog comment, and now you copy large parts of one of my own historical blog articles. While I respect your contributions, I do *not* approve of that sort of pollution of my blog’s comment section. Use a pastebin to share large texts and point to blog URLs if you want to make a point.
You get a warning now, not to repeat this annoying pasting behavior.
Thanks Eric for your time and effort.
Eric, thanks for the quick update after disclosure of a zero day.
112.0.5615.121 ungoogled working well here.
Thanks for the swift Chromium-ungoogled 112.0.5615.165 update!
Another zero-day exploit. 🙁
Indeed, another 0-day exploit.
For other readers: in the meantime you can find the updated packages for chromium as well as chromium-ungoogled (32bit and 64bit) in my repository or its mirrors. Please upgrade ASAP.
Posting from chromium-ungoogled-112.0.5615.165-x86_64-1alien and all is well
Woo Hoo !
You’ve had a busy week, Eric
Thank you for openjdk-8u372_b07-x86_64-1alien, chromium-ungoogled-113.0.5672.63-x86_64-1alien, chromium-113.0.5672.63-x86_64-1alien and libreoffice-7.5.3-x86_64-1alien
All are running fine here on my Slackware64 15.0 Laptop with MultiLib.
Yeah there was no time to write a proper post, but Chromium 113 is again a highly recommended upgrade wrt security holes being plugged.
The updated gcc 13.1.0_multilib ‘testing’ packages (now including the m2 compiler package) are on their way.
Thanks for the chromium-ungoogled 113.0.5672.92 update!
Yes, thanks Eric.
Posting from chromium-ungoogled-113.0.5672.92-x86_64-1alien on Slackware64 15.0 +MultiLib and everything looks great.
Thanks again for the swift Chromium 113.0.5672.126 update!
Critical vulnerability fixed, although still without a known exploit.
Patiently waiting for the ungoogled version!
> Patiently waiting for the ungoogled version!
Me too. The source release for ungoogled-chromium is not yet available.
Yeah, the PR needs one more approved review.
