The better Chrome

Hello guys!

I've been using Chrome since it came out about 5 years ago.

I've always loved it but the truth is that there are Chrome alternatives that are pretty better than the Chrome itself. Also, Chrome started becoming slower and heavier that ruins the UX, especially if you are a web developer.

What I'm talking about are these 2 browsers:

Chrome Canary - https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/canary.html

Chromium - http://www.chromium.org/

The Chrome family

The Chrome Canary is the developer version of Chrome. Using Canary you're always 1 or 2 versions ahead from the official Chrome. You know what will be available in the next Chrome and you are one of the early adopters. Cool. The bad thing is that these versions have bugs and sometimes these bugs are pretty massive. I've reported more than 10 very serious bugs that have prevented me from using the browser properly.

Chromium is an open-source project supported mainly by Google. Chromium is the basic stable Chrome that won't run your PC out of memory. Chromium has all the features that Chrome has - including accounting, dev tools, extensions and so on. Chromium is faster and lighter but using it you may not be updated for a couple of months.

On my home PC I'm with the Canary while on my work PC I use Chromium. And I'm happy with that.

I know there are a lot of Chromium-based browsers but Google is Google. :)
