  • Due to increasing problems with webview and build time, I will now release the main browser and webviews separately. In case of any problems occur with the builds, the main browser will take precedence.

Good news!. The version which supports extensions now works. It's still a Pre-Release version though

v88.0.4324.152-2 released

Changelog here


Extension version only:
Get it here


Some things you need to do before the extensions can be installed

1) Go to chrome://flags and search for Handling of extension MIME type requests. ENABLE 'Always prompt for install'
2) Go to chrome://extensions and enable Developer mode on the top right
3) Set your preferred search engine
4) Switch to Desktop site
5) Go to Chrome Web Store and search for the extension you want and 'Add to Chromium'. It'll prompt you to install the extension

You should see the below screenshots. 5 extensions per row. More than that will be displayed in the second row. FI, I added the LocalCDN and Dark Reader extensions

Got a hang just now while using it. Needs to reset phone

Hope that this completed version can soon replace the Kiwi browser which does not come with any more updates to Chromium

EDIT

Found a bug. Extension updating at chrome://extensions seems not working. No issue on Kiwi browser

PLUS

In Bookmarks now you can move a bookmark down which you can't do it in Kiwi browser. A nice improvement.

MINUS

Not easy to go to Extensions page. You'll need to type chrome://extensions to access the page

Bad news. It seems the extension version has been discontinued. The last version will be v88.0.4324.182. Now there's no chromium-based android browser which supports extensions.

As for the removal of the extension version wchen342, the author, (and Eloston) have made their points here regarding Ungoogled Chromium


And some future thoughts of wchen342 projects here. Well, he works part-time for Brave now, and he has some ideas for Bromite too
