#Google starts to lock out non-official Chrome builds like #Chromium. The #web is a cricual infrastructure these days and as such we need independent browsers and rendering engines!

If you care about the free and open web you shouldn't use Chrome based browsers.

@bjoern it's sick how big of an impact a decision of "one single" private actor can have on the whole market. They surely can decide that, since it's their product and right to do so. Still it makes me sick.

I wonder if it's actually legal in Europe though... Remember when Microsoft had to include alternative browsers so they don't gain too much advantage? If google excludes a whole bunch of users and forces them to use their browser, who knows. Maybe it's the same category
