    At my last check Chromium had to be compiled from source for Windows with the instructions specifically using Visual Studio to do so. I was wondering if anyone here has done so, and if so what the results were like? I really like Google Chrome but I had a discussion about SE Linux alerts and Google Chrome the other day. It mainly was about Chrome's constant contact with the mothership, and how that surprisingly it is not prompting more of these SE Linux alerts. That has got me thinking about using Chromium instead. I am assuming Chromium's OSS nature probably lends superior respect for privacy versus Chrome. Any info on compiling Chromium for Windows or thoughts about privacy issues concerning the use of either would be greatly appreciated. However, please do not post about alternatives such as SRWare's Iron here. I am fully aware of those alternatives and I am not interested in them.

    Sincerely,
