I just downloaded version 1847.116, installed it (under Snow Leopard X.6.8) and it crashed immediately. Then it again crashed on trying to re-open it. So I can't supply a rating yet, but wonder if others have run into this wall and know how to get past it.

Great app, but DON'T download 34.0.1847.116 version. Seems some basic functionality is broken. On two different computers with 34.0.1847.116 tried going to google images and right clicking an image to download it. Crashes the program every time.
I don't know what else is broken, but the complications of downgrading if you run into trouble are enough of a headache for most people to probably want to stick with 33.xx for now

it's really bad. I can't fix my profile. I can't rebuild, backup/restore, nothing!!!
I am still looking for a way to fix it without losing everything.

Error every time I start it;

Your profile can not be used because it is from a newer version of Chromium.

Some features may be unavailable. Please specify a different profile directory or use a newer version of Chromium.

FYI: Although the release notes state version 34.0.1847.116 includes Pepper Flash 13.0.0.182, typing "chrome://plugins" into the URL field reports it's still at version 12.0.0.77.

You can however use the NPAPI (Safari/Firefox) version if you have it installed and are concerned about running the outdated Pepper Flash version by clicking the "Details" button in the chrome://plugins window and then the "Disable" button on Pepper Flash, then "Enable" on the NPAPI one.

DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS VERSION!

Devs screwed up: you cannot open an Incognito window, History is only viewable from inside Preferences, and you cannot open a just-closed tab any more with a key command (you need to select it in Preferences->History).

These changes were not supposed to occur, so wait for a fixed update hopefully out soon.

I downloaded the latest raw build for Chromium 36.0.1917.0 (260370) at https://download-chromium.appspot.com/ and all the issues with 33.0.1750.152 went away, but I assume it's a fragile/buggy build, so be careful if you download it....

For a view versions now, whoever makes their DMG file has messed up the symlink at the DMG's root level that's supposed to point to "/Applications". They have it pointing at "/volumes/MoLi 10.8/Applications", which you can verify with "ls -l". This means that the symlink is busted for the rest of us.

BEWARE 33.0.1750.152!

I updated through the App this morning and Incognito was completely GONE. Not in the menus, not in the key commands, I just couldn't get an Incognito window AT ALL.

Also, some other key commands didn't work, like CMD+SHIFT+[ or ] for navigating between tabs.

I restored 33.0.1750.117 from Time Machine.

Stable, useful alternative to Chrome that doesn't auto-update in the background like Chrome does.

I like Chrome but for some reason it freezes on some websites and then my Mac's temperature starts skyrocketing. Weird! So I downloaded Chromium and it works perfectly, and uses all extensions from the Chrome store as well.

Highly recommended!

Some positive news for Chromium/1Password 4 users. The 1P4 beta works on the excellent Maxthon browser which is based on the Chromium engine. Here's how to convert Chromium to Maxthon without losing your settings and extensions:

1. Download the Maxthon app from MU but don't open it
yet.
2. Go to Application Support, find the Chromium folder.
3. Change the name of that folder to "Maxthon."
4. Now open Maxthon from your Applications folder.
Maxthon will open with all your Chromium data intact.
5. Find the Chrome Web Store online using Maxthon and
locate the 1Password 4 beta there. Install it. Be sure
to delete any other version of 1P you may have already
installed.
6. Reopen Maxthon.

To go back to Chromium just follow the process in reverse. I myself have been using Maxthon for several months and consider it superior to either Chromium or Chrome. And it has no commercial connection to Google.

MisterE had trouble on 13 Mar 2013
I see Chromium is a 133.3MB app and Chrome is 133MB app on disk so I ask the users of Chromium again, what is the bloat that comes with Chrome?

What are the advantages to switching, besides 64-bit, which is not really an advantage for me. And an open source app which I can see as both a plus and a minus but mostly a plus. Sometimes it's nice to have the backing of a corporation with bottomless pockets but you usually give up a lot of control for that.

I can't find much reason to switch even though I've had the last 3 versions (updated daily?) installed now.

Thanks in advance.

P.S. I notice the version numbers for Chromium are the same as they are for Chrome! Can anyone explain that plz?

No matter what I try - tweaking firewall/privacy settings, disabling extensions, clearing caches, etc - Chromium will not load any nhl.com page, but seems to hang with the message "waiting for nhl.com" in the lower left region.

I have the same issue (10.7.4). Chromium doesn't seem to be closing properly. I don't auto update anymore and download the new version manually. It could be the Sparkle update framework

I thought I was the only one! Glad - if that's the right word - to hear I'm not.

Additionally, it often asks me twice - in immediate succession - for permission to use passwords, then doesn't use them.

Hi,

each time I update Chromium Lion asks me for each single password from the keychain if it is allowed that chromium access the keychain for password xyz; I can choose between yes, no, everytime yes. But it accesses 30 passwords so the effort is tasteless ... any idea what I should change or how to stop this?

many thanks

"This release contains an updated version of the Adobe Flash player"
Strange! On the plugin page it doesn't show any Flash plugin.
Am I supposed to install something else, like the standard Flash player?
