NAME
       chromium-browser - the web browser from Google


SYNOPSIS
       chromium-browser [OPTION] [PATH|URL]


DESCRIPTION
       See the Google Chrome help center for help on using the browser.

              <http://www.google.com/support/chrome/>

       This manpage only describes invocation, environment, and arguments.


OPTIONS
       Chromium  has  hundreds of undocumented command-line flags that are added
       and removed at the whim of the developers.  Here, we document  relatively
       stable flags.

       --user-data-dir=DIR
              Specifies  the  directory  that user data (your "profile") is kept
              in.  Defaults  to  ~/.config/chromium  .   Separate  instances  of
              Chromium must use separate user data directories; repeated invoca‐
              tions of chromium-browser will reuse an  existing  process  for  a
              given user data directory.


       --app=URL
              Runs URL in "app mode": with no browser toolbars.


       --incognito
              Open in incognito mode.


       --proxy-server=host:port
              Specify  the  HTTP/SOCKS4/SOCKS5 proxy server to use for requests.
              This overrides any environment variables or  settings  picked  via
              the options dialog.  An individual proxy server is specified using
              the format:

                [<proxy-scheme>://]<proxy-host>[:<proxy-port>]

              Where <proxy-scheme> is the protocol of the proxy server,  and  is
              one of:

                "http", "socks", "socks4", "socks5".

              If the <proxy-scheme> is omitted, it defaults to "http". Also note
              that "socks" is equivalent to "socks5".

              Examples:

                --proxy-server="foopy:99"
                    Use the HTTP proxy "foopy:99" to load all URLs.

                --proxy-server="socks://foobar:1080"
                    Use the SOCKS v5 proxy "foobar:1080" to load all URLs.

                --proxy-server="socks4://foobar:1080"
                    Use the SOCKS v4 proxy "foobar:1080" to load all URLs.

                --proxy-server="socks5://foobar:66"
                    Use the SOCKS v5 proxy "foobar:66" to load all URLs.

              It is also possible to specify a separate proxy server for differ‐
              ent  URL types, by prefixing the proxy server specifier with a URL
              specifier:

              Example:

                --proxy-server="https=proxy1:80;http=socks4://baz:1080"
                    Load https://* URLs using the HTTP  proxy  "proxy1:80".  And
              load http://*
                    URLs using the SOCKS v4 proxy "baz:1080".


       --no-proxy-server
              Disables the proxy server.  Overrides any environment variables or
              settings picked via the options dialog.


       --proxy-auto-detect
              Autodetect proxy configuration.  Overrides any  environment  vari‐
              ables or settings picked via the options dialog.


       --proxy-pac-url=URL
              Specify  proxy  autoconfiguration  URL.  Overrides any environment
              variables or settings picked via the options dialog.


       --password-store=<basic|gnome|kwallet>
              Set the password store to use.  The default  is  to  automatically
              detect  based on the desktop environment.  basic selects the built
              in, unencrypted password  store.   gnome  selects  Gnome  keyring.
              kwallet  selects  (KDE)  KWallet.  (Note that KWallet may not work
              reliably outside KDE.)


       --version
              Show version information.


       As a GTK+ app, Chromium also  obeys  GTK+  command-line  flags,  such  as
       --display.  See the GTK documentation for more:

              <http://library.gnome.org/devel/gtk/stable/gtk-running.html>

              <http://library.gnome.org/devel/gtk/stable/gtk-x11.html>


ENVIRONMENT
       Chromium obeys the following environment variables:


       all_proxy
              Shorthand for specifying all of http_proxy, https_proxy, ftp_proxy


       http_proxy, https_proxy, ftp_proxy
              The  proxy  servers  used for HTTP, HTTPS, and FTP.  Note: because
              Gnome/KDE proxy settings may propagate  into  these  variables  in
              some terminals, this variable is ignored (in preference for actual
              system proxy settings) when running under Gnome or KDE.   Use  the
              command-line  flags to set these when you want to force their val‐
              ues.


       auto_proxy
              Specify proxy autoconfiguration.  Defined and  empty  autodetects;
              otherwise,  it  should  be  an autoconfig URL.  But see above note
              about Gnome/KDE.


       SOCKS_SERVER
              SOCKS proxy server (defaults to SOCKS v4, also set SOCKS_VERSION=5
              to use SOCKS v5).


       no_proxy
              Comma separated list of hosts or patterns to bypass proxying.


FILES
       ~/.config/chromium
              Default directory for configuration data.


       ~/.cache/chromium
              Default  directory  for  cache  data.   (Why?   See  <http://stan‐
              dards.freedesktop.org/basedir-spec/latest/> .)
