Ungoogled Chromium Strips Away The Privacy-Invading Features From Chrome

Chrome’s a great browser, but there’s no denying that Google’s got eyes deep inside it to track all kinds of stuff. Ungoogled Chromium is a special build that strips as much of that stuff away as possible.

Ungoogled Chromium is essentially a special version of Chrome packed with configuration flags, patches and custom scripts that are meant to remove offending services that communicate with Google. This ranges from smaller things like disabling the automatic URL formatting in the Omnibox to bigger features like disabling JavaScript dialog boxes. Of course, you could always just use a different browser that’s a little more conscious of privacy, like Tor, Vivaldi, Opera or Epic, but if you’re a big fan of Chrome aside from it’s snooping behaviour, Ungoogled Chromium seems like a solid variant. As you’d expect, you can dig through the code over at GitHub to see if it’s up to snuff.
