"If you're using the Linux operating system, you can choose from
among numerous browsers that range in scope and feature. But
despite all the choices, most Linux users are familiar with only
one or two. (Firefox and Chrome top the list.) So I thought it

playground. None of the competition even comes close to its speed.

can install Chromium Browser when you search for it in the
Add/Remove Software tool. Chromium is the open source version of
the Chrome browser and works as well. It stands up,
feature-for-feature, against its proprietary brethren.
