Chromium is an open-source browser project that aims to build a safer, faster, and more stable way for all Internet users to experience the web.

Chromium serves as a base for Google Chrome, which is Chromium rebranded (name and logo) with very few additions such as usage tracking and an auto-updater system.

Since version 28, all Chromium based browsers use a forked version of Webkit, called Blink.

The Chromium package in Ubuntu is named chromium-browser.
