    Peter Beverloo is keeping excellent, updated list of various cmd-line switches for Chromium (and Chrome)
    and I picked from there few ones that might make it less "chatty" by running it like this under Linux (and should work with Windows too):

    chromium-browser --disable-background-networking --disable-breakpad --disable-cloud-import --disable-databases --disable-preconnect --disable-speech-api --disable-sync --disable-voice-input --disable-webgl --incognito --media-cache-dir=/dev/null --disk-cache-dir=/dev/null --no-pings --no-wifi --disable-local-storage --proxy-server=socks5://127.0.0.1:9050

    So far everything seems to work okay (knocks wood).

    Of course, running Chromium with Tor (--proxy-server switch) might be questionable but I just couldn't resist trying it.
