Firefox has been expanding to support features that used to require extra plugins.
The Chromium team has removed few LKGR builders (407399, 576253 and chromium-dev) but other ones still work (latest commit, latest builds).
Finally, there is no LKGR binary shared by the Chromium team... ^^ Except for stable versions, the developers use the official Snapshots repository to re-compile their builds. ;) Jerry Some developers maintain forks of Chromium that offer more features and enhancements. ;) And if you want to follow new Chromium features, check the Google posts of the Chromium Evangelist at Google Sometimes you need to use Google API keys to talk to some Google services (Sync, Speech, Hotword, Translate, Now, Hangout...).
Note that incognito mode disables all extensions by default.
for developers to update Chromium to the latest good build via a bash (shell) script, an add-on... Please, do not use this API to build other websites. Do not forget: It is open-source does not mean it is secure and respects user privacy (and security ≠ privacy).
Control your personal info and #privacy yourself ^^ Moreover, Insanity Bit explains this very well on his blog: SRWare Iron Browser – A private alternative to Chrome? Its private policy and marketing strategy are well known. While I recommend Firefox as the most reliable browser for privacy enthusiasts (cf.

Check the official build instructions to understand that Chromium cannot use the existing content/implementation, which is based on V8/Blink and is multiprocess. ^^ Obviously, you know this site is not the Chromium official website.

This portable version will leave no personal information behind on the machine you run it on. This version uses a specific subfolder (named "Data") directly in the main folder, for all user data. Chromium OS is the open-source operating system designed by Google that primarily runs web applications, using Gentoo as its foundation. As a regular user (not an expert), I created it in 2013 because I did not find a simple way to download good releases. The official developers (aka The Chromium Authors) do not release it to end users. build (also known as "Snapshot", "Nightly" or "Raw" build) is compile of the Chromium code whenever there are submitted code changes. A snapshot build will be created as long as the code compiles successfully.
Packaged in the Portable format by Versatile Apps, it can work as standalone software. Its binary files are stored in the Snapshots repository of Google Storage.
