Linux Mint Now Packaging Their Own Chromium, Developing New IPTV Player

Linux Mint is finally packaging Chromium. Linux Mint previously offered Chromium when Ubuntu offered it as a Debian package prior to migrating to Chromium Snaps. Meanwhile the upstream Debian packaging for Chromium often falls well out of date. Thus Linux Mint is now packaging Google’s open-source Chromium web browser on its own for users interested it in place of the official Google Chrome package or using the likes of Firefox.
