Chromium is an open source web browser that strives for a secure, fast and stable web browsing experience for its users. It is the open source project behind Google Chrome.

Installation

As of 2021-10-14 19:19:07, Debian's Chromium package in buster, bullseye and bookworm repository remains vulnerable to numerous CVEs as outlined in the Chromium Security Tracker. Consider using an alternative browser like Firefox.

From the debian repo

How to install Chromium:

apt install chromium chromium-l10n

(chromium-l10n is only used for localization and is optional)

Extensions

Many popular, useful, and open-source browser extensions for Chromium are built as Debian packages that can be loaded locally and updated via Apt, reducing the need to use the Chrome Web Store and to trust the binary extension files that it serves. You can find these by searching for packages named webext-*.

Viewing PDF

Chromium can view PDFs without any additional extensions (internally using PDFium software library)


Video acceleration

Since Chromium 88, video acceleration is available but not enabled. This results in the CPU being used instead of the video card, attempting to enable this option offloads the CPU for the video card:
