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.

              <https://support.google.com/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
              $HOME/.config/chromium  .   Separate  instances  of Chromium must use separate user
              data directories; repeated invocations 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.

       --new-window
              If PATH or URL is given, open it in a new window.

       --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 different 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  variables  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
              values.

       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

       $HOME/.config/chromium
              Default directory for configuration data.

       $HOME/.cache/chromium
              Default        directory        for       cache       data.        (Why?        See
              <http://standards.freedesktop.org/basedir-spec/latest/> .)
