Open-source variant of Google Chrome in beta stages

Chromium Browser beta available for Raspberry Pi

Chromium OS developer Hexxeh has built an open-source variant of Google’s Chrome for the Raspberry Pi.

While it’s not the full Chromium OS, which is still under development, the beta version will give your Raspberry Pi a big speed boost.

Hexxeh suggests overclocking you mini PC and using a fast USB drive or SD card to get the most out of your browsing experience with Chromium.

This is still very much a beta, and interested Raspberry Pi owners will have to grab the binaries and compile it themselves
