Open the Chrome Task Manager: Shift + Esc: Set focus on the first item in the Chrome toolbar: Shift + Alt + t: Set focus on the rightmost item in the Chrome toolbar: F10: Switch focus to unfocused dialog (if showing) and all toolbars: F6: Open the Find Bar to search the current page: Ctrl + f or F3: Jump to the next match to your Find Bar. The Chromium projects include Chromium and Chromium OS, the open-source projects behind the Google Chrome browser and Google Chrome OS, respectively. This site houses the documentation and code related to the Chromium projects and is intended for developers interested in learning about and contributing to the open-source projects. The Safari browser comes pre-installed with macOS and it’s a browser many people love. While this isn’t Chrome for OS X, it’s a very good look at what will become Chrome for OS X. As such, I thought I’d download a build and check out the state of Chrome-to-be on the Mac.Installing Chromium on Mac OS X
Note: The following steps are specific to Mac OS X 10.6. They should work with earlier versions of Mac OS.
Since Chromium is an ongoing open source project, you will not find an official Chromium browser download page. Instead, to install Chromium, visit the web page where developers post the latest hourly builds, or code updates, of Chromium for download.
Downloading and installing Chromium
To download and install Chromium, do the following:
- Go to http://build.chromium.org/f/chromium/snapshots/chromium-rel-mac/.
- Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on Latest.
- Note the number that appears onscreen. This is the number of the latest Chromium build. You should download and install this version.
- Press the Back button in your web browser to return to the Chromium build index, and click on the latest build number.
- Click on chrome-mac.zip.
- Save the zip file at a location on your computer.
Opening Chromium for the first time
To open Chromium for the first time, do the following: Boot error for mac.
- Double click on the file chrome-mac.zip file on your computer to unzip it.
- Double click on the unzipped folder to open it.
You should see the Chromium application icon.
- Drag and drop the Chromium application icon to the desired folder on your computer.
- Double click on the Chromium icon to open the program.
- Your computer asks you if you'd like to open a program downloaded from the Internet. Click Open to continue.
- In the next window, Chromium asks you to select a search engine for integrated use in the Chromium browser.
After you make your selection, Chromium opens.

Getting Involved >
You can test Chrome builds or Chromium builds. Chrome builds have the most infrastructure for analyzing crashes and reporting bugs. They also auto-update as new releases occur, which makes them a good choice for most uses. Chrome Canary is available for Windows and Mac and autoupdates daily. Other channels (dev and beta) are available.
Chromium builds do not auto-update, and do not have symbols. This makes them most useful for checking whether a claimed fix actually works. Use the following instructions to find builds:
Easy Point and Click for latest build:
Open up https://download-chromium.appspot.com
Easy Script to download and run latest Linux build:
- Head to https://commondatastorage.googleapis.com/chromium-browser-snapshots/
- Choose your platform: Mac, Win, Linux, ChromiumOS
- Pick the Chromium build number you'd like to use
- The latest one is mentioned in the
- Download the zip file containing Chromium
- There is a binary executable within to run
Please file bugs as appropriate.
Downloading old builds of Chrome / Chromium
Let's say you want a build of Chrome 44 for debugging purposes. Google does not offer old builds as they do not have up-to-date security fixes.
However, you can get a build of Chromium 44.x which should mostly match the stable release.
- Look in https://googlechromereleases.blogspot.com/search/label/Stable%20updates for the last time '44.' was mentioned.
- Loop up that version history ('44.0.2403.157') in the Position Lookup
- In this case it returns a base position of '330231'. This is the commit of where the 44 release was branched, back in May 2015.*
- Open the continuous builds archive
- Click through on your platform (Linux/Mac/Win)
- Paste '330231' into the filter field at the top and wait for all the results to XHR in.
- Eventually I get a perfect hit: https://commondatastorage.googleapis.com/chromium-browser-snapshots/index.html?prefix=Mac/330231/
- Sometimes you may have to decrement the commit number until you find one.
- Download and run!
* As this build was made at 44 branch point, it does not have any commits merged in while in beta.
Typically that's OK, but if you need a true build of '44.0.2403.x' then you'll need to build Chromium from the 2403 branch. Some PortableApps/PortableChromium sites offer binaries like this, due to security concerns, the Chrome team does not recommend running them.
