Since the link to the snapshots seems to change more often then I can keep track off I recommend using this link Chromium AppSpot Download to download the latest binaries for each OS. It detects your OS and then offers the latest build automagically. You can find snapshots of all the nightly builds of Chromium here: Chromium Builds Each OS has a ...

I had built a Chrome extension which does this. Note: I built this for just 2 sites - just for the heck of it - by no means it's professional quality™. Please don't flame me for crappy code :) Edit: Updated to manifest v2, which brings in certain additional restrictions. manifest.json { "name": "URL Redirect", "version": "0.2", "description": ...

As stated by Diago, you can download binary releases via the chromium-browser-snapshots repository. Combine this with a quick check of which version_number you need at omahaproxy, and you get a nice direct link to your desired "stable release" without accessing the slow snapshot lister website. ...

In short, you can't, and it doesn't seem to be coming. I'm guessing they're trying to teach you good tab management and to let make you play with the tab ripping. There are many alternative solutions to tab overload though. Take a look at TooManyTabs and Chrome's new verticle tab commandline switch.

Viewing and creating MHTML files in current versions of Google Chrome is supported by toggling the "Save Page as MHTML" option on the chrome://flags page. However, enabling this experimental option disables saving pages as HTML-only or HTML Complete files. From the chrome://flags page: Save Page as MHTML Mac, Windows, Linux Disables saving pages as ...

This could have to do with hardware acceleration. If you are using Flash: Right click on the video, go to Settings and in the first tab toggle the acceleration checkmark. Go to http://www.youtube.com/testtube and enable HTML5. If you are using HTML5: Go to http://www.youtube.com/testtube and disable HTML5. Right click on the Flash video, go to ...

The page searchdomaincheck returns your preferred Google domain. For me, visiting it returns https://www.google.com/ normally, but https://www.google.com.py/ in a temporary profile and incognito mode. This is its main function, although I fail to see why it is needed if you're not using the Google search engine. To make this possible, Chromium has to be ...

Chromium uses one process per plugin, one process per renderer (which corresponds to the number of tabs, generally speaking), and another browser process to manage all of the renderers. The renderers each run in their own sandboxes and can't directly use your disk, network, or display, which they must request access to through the browser process so that ...

While some resources on the Internet claims that Chrome's cookie blocking does not also block LocalStorage, I just ran a quick test and discovered that it does actually block LocalStorage, (at least in Chrome 12, the current beta version). Just click the Wrench and choose Options (or Preferences on UNIX-like platforms), go to the Under the Hood tab, select ...

SuperSorter is a nice Chrome extension that seems to do the job. It's still in beta, but the removal of duplicates seems to work just fine.

I have developed a pre packaged user friendly redirector called Switcheroo if you're interested: Setup custom redirect rules for any http request i.e pages, scripts, images etc. Uses a simple string replace to do this.

There is a known problem - Issue 7160: Wrong font for Japanese characters in English language Chrome, dating from January 2008 but unfixed until today. Only workarounds contributed by users are available, none of which is perfect and some contradict each other. It seems that the only real solution at the moment is to keep on using Firefox. Workaround 1 : ...

As per the site Performance Note: Google Chrome Portable may run slowly from some flash drives. You can speed this up by copying GoogleChromePortable.ini from the GoogleChromePortable\Other\Source directory to the GoogleChromePortable directory and editing it to set RunLocally=true. If you do so, be sure to allow Google Chrome Portable time to copy your ...

Press Ctrl+B for the Chrome 5 (or Shift+Ctrl+B for Chrome 6). And bookmark sidebar probably would not be added: I don't think Google would consider that; part of Chrome's appeal is the minimalistic interface. Many users of other browsers have complained as to how bulky sidebars can be, so I doubt Google will add them. But anyway, you could check a ...

This is a known issue that deals with having the incorrect system time set. Verify your system time against a network time server first then see if the issue reoccurs. Here's the info on the bug: http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=22796

I know that this is an old question but for everybody who, like me, arrives here in the search to get rid of the download bar there is an officialy unofficial way to do it: Type in the URL chrome://flags/ in the omnibox. Scroll down to "New Downloads UI" and enable it then restart Chrome. Setting this flag completely gets rid of the download bar which ...

You cannot change the shortcut keys in Google Chrome unless you install an extension. However, you can add a new search engine in Chrome's Omnibox (address bar) by going to Go to Options > Basic > Default Search > Manage.. Add in a new search engine and call it I'm feeling lucky. Use a suitable shortcut key such as l. Use the following URL: ...

Only WebKit browsers allow styling of validation bubbles using the -webkit-validation-bubble* CSS styles. However, since Chrome moved away from WebKit to Blink, this was removed. See for example Issue 259050: ::-webkit-validation-bubble stopped working in Chrome Blink. Your only option now is to override the general validation bubble mechanism and issue ...

You have to use the --proxy-server argument. From the Chromium Network Settings page: --proxy-server=<scheme>=<uri>[:<port>];.. | <uri>[:<port>] | "direct://" This tells Chrome to use a custom proxy configuration. You can specify a custom proxy configuration in three ways: 1) By providing a semi-colon-separated mapping of ...

Chrome/Chromium does not handle unknown protocol://s by itself, instead it handles it to OS/DE running on parent system, so you just need to register ssh:// protocol for PuTTY. As PuTTY original developer does not want to implement this feature, there is a modified version that supports this feature. Note that you'll need to run the installer from that page ...

This is an old question, but it kept coming up when I was searching for how to do this, and I finally figured out how. I modified the preferences file to add every language to Chrome's translation whitelist, which is the preference that choosing "always translate" changes. Here's the steps to do it: Close Chrome, if it's running. I'm not sure it tolerates ...

First of all, copy the flash plugin. $ sudo cp /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/chromium-browser/plugins Then start Chromium like this. $ chromium-browser --enable-plugins This answer is outdated; you no longer need to do this to get flash running in Chromium.
