This is a discussion on ChromePlus 1.2.5.0 - Is This The Future of Chrome ? within the Chrome Talk section, part of the Google Chrome category: Of course it's related to Google those two variations. All of them use Chromium, that's the why all the basics ...

    Of course it's related to Google those two variations.

    All of them use Chromium, that's the why all the basics are the same. They just make some other features built-in, and release it (exactly as Google do with Chrome).

    So sure it's related... Otherwise they would never make updates according to the current Chromium release.

    "Chromium" is the name of the open-source project (not product) behind "Google Chrome".

    So instead of using just Google Chrome, they made available the project itself (Chromium) in order to people create variations, such as SRWare Iron, SunChrome, ChromePlus...

    And Chinese people work really a lot, they "crazy" (in a good meaning). Doesn't mean that they have a lot of time. Instead, means they in fact use a lot of their time working, programming, etc. Well, "crazy" is the correct label :P

    I just tried this with the latest Iron 3 release and got 2619. Mind you, it shows the Dev version of Chrome 3 at 5434! (Although the Chrome Dev figure certainly wasn't reached on my laptop or mobile broadband connection!) Interesting site; thanks for that.

    As StevePaul hints though, benchmarks aren't everything. For example, it's taking complex graphics into account, and I don't run anything complex on my laptop, so all I want is very fast browsing and no adverts.

    Hi Sulasno,

    Am I right in thinking this forum is your project as you're Super Mod? If so, why would you not like any posts about other Chromium derivatives apart from Google's version? Just curious.

    I'd have thought that any improvements on Chromium are valid topics for discussion, unless Google are paying you to promote them? For myself, my two main desires are a light browser interface, fast browsing, and above all no adverts (and the ability to block them easily myself). Iron has just done the job for me, whereas StevePaul says he likes the mouse gestures and IE knockout of ChromePlus.

    If Google released a version of Chrome which could use AdBlock Plus then I'd drop Iron and use Chrome, but I don't see any reason to love one company over another, especially when Google could easily have allowed ad blocking from day one. But they didn't. As I said elsewhere, something's a little fishy to me regarding that. Anyway, it's all good, and great to be getting such choice and options these days.

    @Michael3185

    when I was a newbie here, I was bashed for discussing Chromium in this forum
    since the reason was "this is a forum for Chrome"

    I share your comments on any improvements on Chromium are valid topics, but some don't

    Ah, I see. As there seem to be some great new improvements to Chromium from different developers, perhaps it'd be a good idea to have a comparison forum where people could post features and such? Those who are into benchmarks could post results for the various versions on their own machine too, giving a better overall picture.

    Personally, I'm finding it interesting to see how the development of Chromium derivatives is going, and these forums provide a great wealth of information for what's already the best browser ever made (so thanks to all who contribute).

    I am already running beta Chrome in portable; dev Chrome installed and Chromium off a zip folder

    previously I was also running Iron but found it too slow when it comes to updates

    there's another German site with portable Chrome but again it is too slow with updates;
    I simply extract the latest either beta or stable from Google and dumped it into the Chrome portable folder

    I still use Chromium for daily surfing and the rest for testing

    If I remember right you weren't 'bashed' it was merely pointed out that this was (as it was at the time) a forum for Chrome ...

    If I'm not very much mistaken (but I dare say you'll correct me if I'm wrong) you posted a problem that you were having and it was only after quite a few people had attempted to 'resolve' the issue (and wasted time) that it became evident you were actually using Chromium and not Chrome ...

    I did wonder about Iron updates, but downloading another 12MB installer isn't so bad as long as they don't keep updating it every few days. I get the impression they don't as the latest version is from 9th August 2009. Google's idea for small file compare updates is very good, but obviously needed at the rate they're updating Chrome.

    Chromium updates are about 17Mb and extract to about 56Mb;
    with the frequent updates to Chromium, any 3rd party clone developers would have a difficult time in keeping up and that would include any security updates

    3rd party developers should concentrate on adding features to the stable version instead of the dev version IMO

    Just checked and Iron is 12.6MB, which is too big to be downloading very often really. Google definitely has the best combination of resources and release technology, just no ad block - argh! Maybe it's just me, but flashing ads seriously affect my ability to concentrate on reading web pages (and affect my mobile broadband download allowance slightly too).

    One thing I've noticed in Iron that's a bit tacky is that any error results in a blank page with two dots and a plus sign on the left hand side. Clicking the plus sign opens an error explanation. Not very nice, but doesn't affect browsing.
