Cromite (Bromite fork)

One of the main contributors to Bromite has now officially forked it and created Cromite.

Uazo has been maintaining a Bromite dev/test build for a while now over at GitHub - uazo/bromite-buildtools: my build machine for bromite development. In the latest release there’s an announcement that new releases will be in the new Cromite repository linked above.

I found a fork of Bromite browser called Cromite which was mentioned in Libreware channel on Telegram
Cromite is the uptodate version of Bromite but how could i trust this developer like the developer of Bromite??

I have been using bromite from quite a while now. It seemed to be the only good enough ungoogled chromium option on android.

When Bromite became unmaintained, sadness clouded me.

Cromite made me happy, atleast its better in UX perspective. the readme seems pretty nice, the issue resolutions seems nice. All in all, its giving me nice vibes but ofcourse time will tell.

Why don’t you use Brave? If you disable crypto stuff and rewards, it there any advantages b/cromite provide over Brave?

Unlike Bromite/Cromite, Brave still contains proprietary components.


the guy who is working on cromite was a major contributor to the original bromite
