Copy the [your folder]/src/out/Release/Chromium.app file into /Applications/ when it finishes.

You need: git 1.9+, XCode 5+, OS X 10.9+, ~15-20GB of space, ~3-5 hours on 16GB RAM, more otherwise.

Tested on:

  • OS X El Capitan 10.11.2
  • XCode 7.2
  • git version 2.6.4 (git-scm, not apple git)
  • Python 2.7.10
  • gclient.py 0.7 (from depot_tools)

Successfully built Chromium Version 48.0.2564.116 (64-bit), the latest stable release for OSX.
