This tool downloads, installs, and configures a shiny new copy of Chromium.
It includes nifty things like:
- Turning off all those annoying auto-updaters!
- Sweet colored themes for high visibility!
- No XSS auditor!
- Automatic proxy configuration! (uses 127.0.0.1:8080)
- An annoying infobar because it doesn't check TLS certs!
- Basic integration with Burp if you install the included Burp extension
Currently, the following OSes are supported:
- macOS 10.9 (Mavericks) and higher
- Ubuntu 16.04 (and other XDG-supporting Linuxes)
You will need
ruby version 2.0 or higher and
unzip. These are included in
supported macOS versions. You may need to
apt install ruby on Linux.
- Launch Chromium.
- Open the "Getting Started" bookmark.
Execute the following command:
If you've already installed Chromium with this tool before, run
ruby autochrome.rb -c to delete the old installation and install a new one.
If you just want to recreate the profiles without redownloading Chrome, run
ruby autochrome.rb -P.
-h flag to see all of the options.
The "versions" used with this tool are Chromium revisions. You can get a list of the last known good versions here (use the six-digit number after
refs/heads/master), and you can find out what revision a given build of Chrome uses here.
Once you've installed Chromium, it will be placed in the
~/Applications/ directory on OS X or the
~/.local/autochrome/ directory on Linux.
open ~/Applications/Chromium.app is one way to launch it on OS X.
~/.local/autochrome/chrome is a way to launch it on Linux.
Once you've launched Chromium, open the "Getting Started" bookmark.
Autochrome comes with several small utility extensions; you can add more in the
build_extensions.rb script will rebuild all extensions under
data/extension_source, and the standard set of colored themes. This script uses the version of chromium installed by autochrome from the default directory. You must have completed the installation first.
Makes it easy to wipe cookies or all browser history from the menu bar.
Adds a tag to the outgoing user agent to let Burp identify it. Menu bar icon does nothing.
