I want to have Chromium on my Windows machine, but I find only instructions how to make it from sources on official site.

Are there any official pre-built binaries?

Since the link to the snapshots seems to change more often then I can keep track off I recommend using this link Chromium AppSpot Download to download the latest binaries for each OS. It detects your OS and then offers the latest build automagically.

You can find snapshots of all the nightly builds of Chromium here:

Chromium Builds

Each OS has a folder and the latest version number is available under the Latest folder or just sort by date descending.

    Is there something like latest stable chromium build? – Andrew Oct 26 '10 at 18:08

    @Andrew. No, unless you use Chrome. Chromium doesn't have a stable release, as they are continually in development. Basically Chromium has a new version every day, but you can stick with a version for about a month before you need to upgrade. I used both and apart from the icons and the sharing of info with Google, there is no functional difference between the two. – BinaryMisfit Oct 26 '10 at 18:11
  • there are Chromium "source releases". What about those? The revisions are different from the nightlies, but they're just as frequent. Nothing stable about those too? – Daniel Beck Oct 26 '10 at 19:26

    @Daniel. My understanding from the Chromium website and blog is there will never be a stable release, and Chrome opted for a stable cycle in development. It is up to each user to decide which version is "stable" to them. I stopped using it solely because of the lack of PDF viewing that Chrome does have. – BinaryMisfit Oct 26 '10 at 19:33

    @Diago Concerning PDF viewing in Chromium, you can simply copy pdf.dll from Chrome installation to Chromium directory, and PDF viewing will be enabled automatically. – nazikus May 15 '14 at 15:03

As stated by Diago, you can download binary releases via the chromium-browser-snapshots repository. Combine this with a quick check of which version_number you need at omahaproxy, and you get a nice direct link to your desired "stable release" without accessing the slow snapshot lister website.

http://commondatastorage.googleapis.com/chromium-browser-snapshots/index.html?path=Win/ + version_number + /

Don't forget the slash at the end. For example, the current "dev release", at the point of this writing is 113143, and can be found at: http://commondatastorage.googleapis.com/chromium-browser-snapshots/index.html?path=Win/113143/

I guess this was what you were looking for.

  • version_number doesn't seem to be a column anymore? – raphael Aug 8 '16 at 14:03

If you prefer to use only latest stable Chromium release (or latest good Chromium build, for Windows users), check this website: http://chromium.woolyss.com/ The site is auto-updated each day.

You can also find links to most recent builds here: http://getchromium.wasil.org/

This is my site, which I made after facing some frustration while looking for newest builds myself. Just wanted to help people like me :)

It dynamically generates links to newest builds every time you refresh.

BTW: those links go to original build repository mentioned by Diago, so this is merely a wrapper site which does not host any files by itself.

Hope it helps!

In the same way, you can use this website to get the latest stable version of Chromium for Windows, Android, Mac and Linux, from the official repository :

http://downloadchromium.com

Simple, fast and efficient.

    Does not seem to be available anymore. – RhinoDevel Oct 9 '15 at 7:32

As of December 2013, the best source for Chromium binaries you might actually want to use -- as in, ones that aren't potentially very unstable (trunk) -- is http://www.chromium.org/getting-involved/dev-channel
