Chromium beta now available for the Raspberry Pi

Linux on ARMDeveloper Liam McLoughlin is still working on porting the Chromium OS operating system to run on the Raspberry Pi $35 mini-computer. But today he’s released the next best thing – a beta version of the Chromium web browser designed to run on the Raspbian Linux operating system.

Raspbian is a version of Debian Linux optimized to run up to 40 percent faster on the Raspberry Pi’s hardware, and Chromium is the open source version of Google’s Chrome web browser.

The Chromium web browser is a bit of a resource hog, so McLoughlin recommends overclocking the Raspberry Pi and using a speedy SD card or USB flash drive for the Raspberry Pi’s storage for best performance.
