Reason: Versions updates for Windows and macOS.
Chromium is Google’s secure and fast open source web browser. The browser is free to use and does not require registration from Google. Chromium is suitable for any operating system - for Windows, macOS, Debian and Ubuntu platforms. The browser has a convenient platform for web applications. The very first version of the browser was introduced on September 2, 2008.
It may seem to many that the browser is like Google Chrome, but this is not at all the case. Chromium has many differences from Google Chrome. Chromium does not send error reports; the browser only supports open video and audio file formats. If other browsers have built-in Adobe Flash, then you will have to install it yourself. There is no self-update system, so the browser will have to be updated manually.
Now, the browser creators are improving the open source code of the browser to release new features for browsing pages that will help users choose the right additional tools. You cannot worry about security, because Chromium is as safe as Google Chrome. But since the browser has available code, this may give rise to using the browser for malicious purposes. Now, many browsers have been developed that work as a web browser, but they have a different level of security.
As already mentioned, the web browser has available source code that attackers can use to create malicious software. If you do not want to become a victim of the Chromium malware, you should only download the web browser from the official site. You should also install an antivirus program on your computer.
Thus, Chromium is a reliable and fast browser that considers the wishes of its visitors.
