Have you set the flag as below

chrome://flags/#extension-mime-request-handling to change from "Default" to "Install always" to make it prompt the user to install. "Default" will cause you to download the extension's crx file instead.

and

Enable Developer mode at the top right corner in the Extensions page

After that

Download the zip file and extract again. The below files/folders should be in the unzipped folder. Load unpacked the unzipped folder again

If all else fail then remove the Ungoogled Chromium browser, re-download and install again. I'm using the installer version NOT the zip version.

BTW, what OS are you using?

The first time I installed Ungoogled Chromium I got a shock of my life because it does not prompt you with any dialogue boxes
it just installs and finishes without any indication. I thought I was doing something wrong with the install.

Hello, are there any important (security/privacy) difference between tangalbert919 and macchrome builds of Ungoogled Chromium? Did someone take a look on it?

The builds of tangalbert919 are officially recommended by Eloston, but they have almost always pretty old chromium version.

On the other hand, the builds of macchrome have the last chromium version, but I do not know whether one can trust this builds.

Builds of tangalbert919:

Builds of macchrome (earlier marmaduke):

What do you think?

Builds at Eloston are better at de-googling than other variants. Let's say the other variants apply less de-googling patches and is also the reason why other variants are quicker to launch

The maintainer (tangalbert919) is not there, so have to wait for the next maintainer to take over. Not sure when that will be. However, the latest source code can be found here


and you can install according to instructions here
