The main issues I have with it are that it closes the browser when you close the last tab, something that drives me absolutely mad!
I have fixed that with an extension, but why it can't have a setting to prevent that, like 360Chrome does, is quite beyond me.
Also, I don't like the fact that there's no way to get bookmarks and external links to always open in a new tab, as there is on 360Chrome.
I guess there's probably an extension for that too, but why it isn't built in as a setting is again a mystery.
It really annoys me when things keep always opening in the same tab.

The --close-window-with-last-tab=never switch has now been added to Supermium.

Everything works great!

Where are you getting that from? AFAIK everything Chromium based is Blink, WebKit is mostly present on Apple's devices. I'm not aware of any readily downloadable recent web browser available for any Windows version based on WebKit. Otter Browser? On Linux, there's Gnome WEB, might be more updated. Haven't tried either.

It simply doesn't happen here.

As far as I know, Google forked Webkit2 to Blink in 2013.
But several companies continued to work with webkit2.
Chromium can be compiled in both Webkit2 and Blink.
Browsers XP compatible that have been compiled in webkit 2 from Chromium are:
-360 Extreme Explorer
-Google Chrome 27.0.1453.116 (latest Webkit 2 except MAC)
-Liebao aka Cheetah Secure Browser by Kingsoft
-Opera browser in 2013 (in 2014 Blink engenie)
-QQ Browser
-Sogou Explorer

Otter Browser is not based on Chromium it is based on Apple Webkit same as Safari

Last binary release 1.0.03 of Otter Browser indeed comes with QtWebKit5.dll from 2017, so while this is WebKit wrapped in Qt framework, it's way too old for comfort.

I don't think 360 Extreme Explorer is WebKit, for starters, it implements WebUSB, WebKit does not implement WebUSB. This document is also outdated, there's no /third_party/WebKit directory in the current Chromium source tree. Another difference is Chromium (Blink) uses V8 JavaScript engine while WebKit uses JavaScriptCore.

GM and YT work in vanilla profile, albeit with all the adds and scripts I don't like. In my usual profile (with tweaks, switches and flags with which they used to work) they don't work anymore (with ungoogled switches or not). In GM, the problem is non-functioning buttons next and such, which prevents login. In YT, empty portal, no search bar.

The compact-ui switch now cuts tabs heigh in half, but without adjuting fonts, so the titles are also (vertically) cut in half.

With my tweaked settings, I managed to get rid of google.com altogether from the list of search engines. Still, I can only use bing or yahoo. I would like to know how to add and make default searches of my choice.

On the bright side, chrome processes close on exiting supermium.

PS: a previous version of this post just dissappeared.

Hi,

In Chromium-based browsers, search engines are added to the list automatically without your consent.
So you have to visit and interact on the web page of the search engine you want to add.

P.S.

I forgot to write that it is of course also possible to add a search engine manually.

 

P.S.1

Deleted unsolicited personal note from the person who asked the question that no one answered before me.

You can use the flag #disable-search-engine-collection if existent.

Unfortunately, in my browser the flag is not present I have been using the extension since the year 2019.

I thought when you post in this thread anyways, you also would surely use Supermium. BTW, Thorium has this flag, too.

The flag debuted in Ungoogled Chromium,

Yep! I already knew.

Not true, it's present even in older Supermium versions, not only the latest.

You don't even need update to the latest hotfix 122 of Supermium.

Try this. Paste and click enter.

chrome://flags/#disable-search-engine-collection

Please tell how do I disable USB detection and WebUsb in Supermium? Thank you!

Disable the flag #enable-webusb-device-detection:)

That won't disable the API...appropriate setting is at chrome://settings/content/usbDevices

Still, I find disabling it pointless...if you're seeing prompts to connect to USB unexpectedly, you should re-evaluate your browsing habits.

I would try talking to one of my USB devices through a web browser just because, but I don't know how any of devices work and I'm back at the fact that I hate programming. :}
