Description:

With this "original" named Kromium Project I want to bring Chromium/Google Chrome web browsers to the KDE side as possible. If you want to help, you're welcome :)

Follow the Kromium Road:

Step1: Configure to use with Kwin*
Watch on video:

PAY ATTENTION: This way is no longer needed since new version of Chrome/Chromium supports KDE (just check "Use borders and title bar" on browser options, and restart the browser).

Step2: Set Kwin decoration for a consistence look with Oxygen and Oxygen Cold color schemes**

Step3: Use KWallet as password manager***
Just launch Chrome/Chromium with this command:
chromium %U --password-store=kwallet

Step4: The Kromium Theme(s)
Kromium Oxygen & Kromium Oxygen Cold are a simple but consistent themes based on the Oxygen color schemes and with Atheis (by Nuno Pinheiro) as wallpaper, and works ok on all resolutions.


* I found this trick long ago somewhere on the web that I can't remember.
** This idea comes to me (a bit forced) towards the impossibility of fixing an acceptable gradient in the main browser frame. Then, QtCurve hacks shows me the right way.

I managed to download Kromium_Cold only. Kromium link leads to a blank browser page.

Sure! But I'm still with 4x. Just when I'll be update.

Few things can be done with the poor customization that offers Chromium at the moment, colors included. My advice: configure Gtk-theme and use it on Chromium.
