What happened to Chromium?

newly I realize, Chromium lacks the native titlebar option. Like totaly went. For me that is a no go, stopped using Chromium any longer. As in Plasma I see this option reasonable. How about you?

Chromium > Settings > Appearance > Use system title bars and borders

is not there any more : - /

Huh. I use Google Chrome, not Chromium, and the last update had reverted the setting to off - but the setting is still there. I just had to toggle it to “on” again.

Sorry to hear about Chromium removing that; you may want to look in Chromium’s flags and see if there’s something in there.

EDIT - btw, the version of Google Chrome I have is google-chrome 93.0.4577.63-1, and I see that Chromium is the same version in the repos.

I tried a few things but gave up, Waterfox is given the task now :slight_smile:
I do use browser isolation, meaning a set of web activity is splitted among each browser

that is right, that was my chromium version too

I hope that Chrome is planning to stick with this setting, as I need my titlebars.

But for now, at least, it’s still there, as you can see:

I hope too, they can disable this option, but why take it away, makes no sense…

what the hell, sometimes you have the solution right in front, yet you can not see.
That was a tricky change, but as I searched the internet others are fooled too !!

Does it depend on the system language ? The Dutch version doesn’t have that option. So is it only available in English language version ?

Are you using chrome or chromium? I don’t think that option has moved in chrome yet.

If you are using chromium, what version do you have?

…or are you in a gnome environment, where such things do not apply?
( just a guess I never had gnome )

I am on XFCE, and I am talking about Chromium version 93.0.4577.63.

I have 93.0.4577.63.1 so it still could come in

Are you talking about the system title bar & borders? It’s always been there as far as i know. Of course i use English language and I’m on the latest version of Chromium.

I checked with yay, and it shows that 93.0.4577.63.1 is installed, but About Chromium show it as 93.0.4577.63, without the 1.

And yes, I mean system title bar & borders, your picture shows more options than I have.

Hmm? :thinking: Not sure. My version shows. Version 93.0.4577.63 (Official Build) Arch Linux (64-bit)

I think what you are actually seeing is 93.0.4577.63-1. The number after the dash is the arch pkgrel. That isn’t part of the version number.
