Is this why the first line of the Wikipedia page for the Chromium browser reads...

"Chromium is Google's open-source web browser project."

It's clearly Google's browser. Just because they leave out some licensed plugins and the usual Google spyware doesn't make it an entirely different browser.

And somehow, Chrome (and in turn Chromium) manage to be bloated memory hogs, despite lacking much in terms of features or proper customization options. It's unfortunate that browser developers feel the need to abandon their browsers and replace them with Chromium reskins just to ensure compatibility with a mediocre browser that only became popular due to Google's web dominance. Chrome is more or less today what IE was over a decade ago. Perhaps it's more "secure" than that browser was then, but it's not exactly a great browser, at least for anyone who needs more than the most basic feature-set.
