    Chromium is the core of the Chrome browser. It functions well enough as a browser but lacks some of Chrome's features (e.g. built in language translator). Even though Chromium is open source, it still "phones home" to Google, which has privacy implications. There are more private Chromium-based browsers, such as Brave and Iridium.

    Different from Firefox, it doesn't autoupdate on Windows. You need to basically download a new browser per wiki and install... On Linux, it's more easy to manage updates depending on the distros, on Arch Linux/Debian it's so easy, but hard on Ubuntu/Mint.

    Chromium doesn't have DRM features and some codecs implemented like Google Chrome, it's open-source but all your data goes to Google when you use Chrome Store to download apps since there is no Chromium store. Also, this browser is hard to install on Windows, you have to compile or download versions that are created by the users daily, so it means you do not have a proper installer like on Linux/BSD.

    Chromium is most likely the heart of Google Chrome, Opera and some browsers without fancy features.

    Used to be a decent Browser until the Chinese took it over. Has a very suspect built in "VPN" Might as well just use Chrome.

    Firefox is focused on privacy and it is open-source. Opera is closed-source and it is owned by a chinese company.. Not so private...

    The snappiest browser I've ever used. Amazing load and boot times compared to Firefox. it is also faster than Chrome and Vivaldi. I tried almost all the alternatives on this page. and Opera was the fastest.
