Chromium for Mac



User rating8


Open-source browser

Chromium open-source browser project containing the source code of many browsers such as Google Chrome, Opera and Brave Browser. It was released by Google at the same time as the Chrome browser. It is now managed by The Chromium Project, a community of developers that aims to create a fast, stable and safe form of web browsing. Any app designer or programmer can engage in the Chromium community via WebKit. You will see that Chromium has a multi-process architecture that integrates the V8 Javascript engine. You can also discuss with other Chromium users in the official forum as well as report any bugs that need to be addressed.



The core part of Chromium is its open-source JavaScript engine. It allows web applications to quickly respond and remain stable. The V8 engine removes any bottlenecks in performance and innovation. So, there is no limit to the number of JavaScript codes that can be used in the application. The engine also has an efficient memory management system which can result in fast object allocation and small trash collection pauses for web applications.  

Chromium also makes use of the WebKit rendering engine. This allows every user to access web pages and web applications. WebKit is a lightweight tool that allows you to develop or improve multi-process browsers. The engine also helps you in keeping with the sandbox objective of Chromium; WebKit does not have access to your local file system nor your widget system. With it, web pages are able to immediately display on your screen. 

The sandbox component of Chromium is the key to protecting your computer from malware. By running parts of the browser in the virtual box, Chromium is able to limit attacks of users that want to take advantage of bugs in the system. It will prevent malicious sites from automatically installing software and reading files on your hard drive. 

Extensive tool for coders

With Chromium, you have access to both its browser process and rendering engine. With the two main modules of Chromium, you can develop your own web applications and tools. You can also contribute to Chromium’s development. Its built-in utilities will help you create a fast and stable web page that is able to protect itself from malware. If you’re looking to start coding or developing web apps or pages, you can use Chromium on Mac devices running OS X 10.6 or later.
