Chromium is an open-source browser project that aims to build a safer, faster, and more stable way for all Internet users to experience the web.
Version 70.0.3538.77 is the latest stable release from Google.
This is a new build based on core18. It has been thoroughly tested internally on all supported Ubuntu releases (from trusty to cosmic), debian testing and fedora 28, and is now open for wider testing.
How to install
snap install chromium --candidate
or, if you’re already using the chromium snap from the stable channel:
snap refresh chromium --candidate
Note that this is an amd64-only build for now, until I figure out and fix build failures on other architectures.
Also note that the snap can coexist with the ubuntu packages. If you wish to remove the ubuntu packages to use solely the snap, you can do:
sudo apt remove “chromium-*”
I’m interested in your feedback using the snap for your normal browsing activities and workflows, including web development.
Please report any issues you encounter in this thread, especially those that appear to be regressions from the version in the stable channel (which is based on core16). Thanks!
