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.


How to install Chromium:

apt-get update
apt-get install chromium chromium-l10n

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


External extensions are disabled by default. See here for why.

You can enable them adding a file in /etc/chromium.d/ that sets the flags: --load-extension=/extension_fullpath for each one, or enables all with --enable-remote-extensions.

An example of a /etc/chromium.d/enable-remote-extensions file:

# Enable the extensions
export CHROMIUM_FLAGS="$CHROMIUM_FLAGS --enable-remote-extensions"

Or simply copy-paste this into your terminal to create the file:

echo '# Enable the extensions
export CHROMIUM_FLAGS="$CHROMIUM_FLAGS --enable-remote-extensions"' \
| sudo tee /etc/chromium.d/enable-remote-extensions

Viewing PDF

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