Raspberry Pi – Chromium browser

Apparently Chrome is based on an open-source package called Chromium, and there is a Chromium browser for the R-Pi!

Install it with “sudo apt-get install chromium-browser“.

It has all the familiar features like the Extension “Switch to New Tab” — Amazing.

Here is a screen-shot of the R-Pi showing Chromium expanded with a few Cntrl/+  keys:

So, we now have a decent browser to use. Dillo was very basic. Midori was slightly better. But Chromium wins!
