The only way to fight or confirm impressions or hearsay is by factual data. Therefore I am asking forum members using a Chromium based browser (.e.g Edge, Brave, Opera, Vivaldi, Woolyss Chromium, Ungoogled, etc) to post when they receive an update which contains the security updates of Google's Chrome's latest.

To kick off with latest thread from MalwareTips Bot

May 20, 2020 Google Chrome 83.0.4103.61 has been released


When you use a different Chromium based browser please post when you received this update also


P.S.
For data gathering one confirmation per browser would be sufficient. When the mods also think this information ads value to the Browsers & Extension forum section, please make it a sticky. When this thread becomes a sticky (and members keep this a clean thread, with limited off topic posts) I promise to collect the data and publish it in a spreadsheets to monitor the update delay of different Chromium variants.

Thanks for everyone posting updates in this thread, based on the factual data collected by the members of MT it looks like

Brave and Edge are safe to use because of their quick responses to Google's Chrome six-week update cycle and patches. Woolyss Chromium and Woolyss Ungoogled Chromium are also good to go (considering their one man band operation is quite a feat that they are nearly always as fast as Edge and Brave ).

Other chromium based browsers (like Opera, Vivaldi, Yandex and other clones like the Ungoogled on Github) are not advised because of their (s)low update cycles (increasing the risk of misuse of browser vulnerabilities by malware writers).

Is that a correct conclusion in your opinion ( I can't open a poll afterwards, but I am intrested in your opinion THANKS @Spawn (y))

PLEASE VOTE AGREE/DISAGREE
