So with some of these, the extensions are more difficult to install?
Not for Elosotn flavor but not sure of the woolyss flavor as I'm not using it

Read through the 4 pages on this thread and the manner extensions are uploaded NOT directly from Chrome Web Store are there. Basically, 3 easy methods include

1) Installing the Ungoogled Chromium Extension Installer extension
2) Go to crxextractor.com to install the extensions
3) Download the crx file (from either crxextractor.com or crx4chrome.com) for the extension and then drag-and-drop onto the extension page in UC

For UC you can also install extensions from non-Chrome Web Store. Chrome browser prevents you from installing from 3rd-party stores

Thanks I will have a look at this thread. Which build are you running and why?

I would still prefer to have the most up to date one with patches etc.
Use UC from Marmaduke @ woolyss.com for most frequently updated ungoogled version. Yes, all of a sudden it is a bit behind the Eloston version, which was last updated in May, whereas Marmaduke's was last updated July 19.

@HarborFront is right. These are all easy methods for installing extensions. I generally use Method #3, but sometimes grab it directly from GitHub/Lab and drag/drop - depending on extension - which I suppose makes this Method #4. ;)

I use this version since it updates the same as Brave release, and has some (?) extra flags not found in Eloston. (y)

I'm using the Eloston version all these while. Unless the UC flavor by Marmaduke @ woolyss.com is identical to the Elsoton I might switch over.

Eloston's flavor is contributed by different authors but Marmaduke @ woolyss.com is authored by him only

Likely because Brave moves faster than the Eloston UC so there are some flags not available

At this moment both Brave and UC@Eloston are at the same version and build. Any new flags Brave has that are not available in UC?

Marmaduke does not have an installer? Only available as portable? The one above it, Hibbiki has one. Btw, what is the difference between Marmaduke and Hibbiki? Two different people? Thanks.
There are many UC flavors compiled by different authors and hosted by them at github or other depositories even for the same OS platform. Choose the one you need and stick to the same author

From below


Hibbiki don't have a Ungoogled Chromium flavor

I meant that Eloston has different flags than Marmaduke. M has 3 fingerprinting flags and last I checked E had only 1 or 2, before today's update.
FYI, UC by Eloston already has the following flags in v81 against fingerprinting because I'm using Eloston's flavor all these while

  • Enable get*ClientRects() fingerprint deception
  • Enable Canvas::measureText() fingerprint deception
  • Enable Canvas image data fingerprint deception
Are they the same as Marmaduke?

Yes. I think the last Eloston version didn't have all these? Only the new version?

For those using UC@woolyss by Marmaduke please note the v84 (and previous versions) has widevine built-in which belongs to Google


Someone raised an issue on whether UC by Marmaduke is trustable and why it wasn't hosted at Eloston's site. And Eloston replied below.
