Installing and tweaking Chromium on Mobian and Arch
Double edit: Pressing Esc makes you lose your edits. How annoying.

EDIT: If you use Ungoogled Chromium, you need to install an extension so that you can download extensions (not a typo), THEN enable Developer Mode for extensions, THEN use a mouse to drag downloaded extensions into the extensions menu to install the extension. It's a PITA, but this is currently the price to pay to get the best-functioning browser, Ungoogled.


Thanks for posting this, I've been meaning to do the same.

I recommend using Ungoogled Chromium to avoid as much of the Google BS as possible. Just install `com.github.Eloston.UngoogledChromium` instead of the regular version.

Using it has given me hope. I know Google is awful, but the browser works so well that it has shown me that the Pinephone can run decently well once the software optimization improves.

Using Firefox is, honestly, a painful experience ATM. Chromium starts in less than 3 seconds and runs surprisingly well.
