    As major repositories already include Chromium, I think it won't happen.

    Thank you kindly,
    I did notice the site offers versions minus webrtc and widevine etc and maybe linux versions could be available.

    Yes, I thought that is your interest. Maybe Linux user is expected to compile it by themselves...:(

    Awesome thank you!

    Question on GPO. I see you have to enable the updating of Google Chrome Enterprise via GPO which I did. Question though, does this handle just the updating of Chrome itself? What about chrome://components/ a la Flash Player? I have not had it rolled out long enough to find this out myself at work yet. Was curious if you knew and how you handle the updating of it?

    Thanks!

    @Trooper You're welcome. I apologize, but I don't know the answer to any of those questions. I have only got some basic group policy settings working initially but have not had the time to dig in further and explore more settings yet. If you figure any of those out, please feel free to share here in the thread how you resolved it.

    Thanks WBD, and shared by others im sure.

    Now that I have finally resorted to FFQ for the first time in centuries lol it looks like the right time to add this one and do the compare runs. Browsers seem like a motorway anymore with multiple hazards to take charge of with add-ons etc.

    I have chromium on my linux box and it reports version 64 as up to date.I assume the linux versions perhaps lag behind or the repo mananger awaits version 65.?
