I’ve finally switched back to Ungoogled Chromium for web dev testing purposes. Here’s a brief list of the steps I followed to get it done. Installation on macOS happens through Homebrew. Once completed the browser can be found in
brew install --cask eloston-chromium
I later customized a few Chrome flags:
#extension-mime-request-handlingset to always prompt for install so that I can install extensions from
#show-avatar-buttonset to never.
#read-laterset to disabled.
#side-panelset to disabled.
After downloading uBlock Origin, I installed it by dragging the
.crx file onto browser window. Then, I imported uBlock settings from Firefox. My
localhost was added to the bookmarks. Since Ungoogled Chromium is already set to clear cookies and cache when all the windows are closed, and also no password suggestions, autofill, phone-home etcetera, I didn’t have to go through the settings to polish things.
