on CrossOver Chromium (a way for Chrome on Linux)

1 min read

CrossOver Chromium is a nice and easy approach to run the famous Google Chrome browser under Linux (while waiting for the official Linux version and if you don’t want to mess around with Wine). I tried it on my OpenSUSE machine, it works pretty well. There are minor glitches, like maximized window could not be restored anymore (because Chrome skips normal window management), a status bar that does not appear and disappear properly, the omnibox rendering problem, and similar other small annoyances. But all in all, for 11 days of work, it is an amazing achievement.

Checking its JavaScript performance using SunSpider, it is only up to 40% slower. However, it still feels smooth and fast. Definitely worth a try.
