Ungoogled Chromium

Continuing the setup of the Chromebook I find that even Chromium is slow to load some pages, maybe I am a little impatient.

So here are the instructions to install ungoogled-chromium.

First of all you need to add the Opensuse repository to your pacman configuration file. Yes OpenSuse have an Arch repository!

echo '                            
SigLevel = Required TrustAll
Server = https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/ungoogled_chromium/Arch/$arch' | sudo tee --append /etc/pacman.conf

Then you need to update the repository information and install the package

sudo pacman -Sy ungoogled-chromium

If you currently have Chromium installed it will prompt you to uninstall it due to a conflict, it will have No as the default answer you so must type Y/y to confirm.

There does seem to be a performance improvement and overall I am happy with the result. The only real problem is you cannot install extensions, so set Chromium up first with all the add-ons you need and then switch to the ungoogled version.
