I deleted chromium and installed chrome-sandbox but I don't really know what is who. Is this package a sandbox version of chromium by google or is it a non-google fork of chromium built on the sandbox concept?

How do I start it (doesn't show in menu)?


Who, has loved us more?

Re: chromium-sandbox

That package supplies the sandbox for chromium. It cannot be used without chromium but chromium can be used without it if you want to decrease browsing security.

It is only a Recommends for chromium though so all those fools who have enabled APT::Install-Recommends "0"; in their APT configuration are running chromium without a sandbox. lol.

EDIT: to clarify this is for the chromium-sandbox package. I don't know about any "chrome-sandbox" package.
