edit: Stable Chrome.  Google “only” inflicts the RLZ via google searches using the default google search.  Instead edit chrome profile files or add your own Google search and set it to default.

Iron was the FIRST chromium build with adblocking.  Use SRware builds of chromium if you like, but expect LONG delays between versions.  The only solid advantage now is better 64bit linux support.

> Summary: I downloaded the recently released source code for the
> “privacy-oriented” Iron 4 browser and compared it to the open source
> Chromium browser from which it was derived. I found that all Iron
> does is hard-code three privacy options, that were already
> user-configurable, and add one or two minor features unrelated to
> privacy, like increasing the number of thumbnails on the New Tab
> page.

Making money via third party interweb ads IS a moral crime.

Its almost pass acid test 3: http://acid3.acidtests.org

Expect something more soon from –enable-greasemonkey

Until then try GreaseMetal: http://greasemetal.31tools.com/

Greasemetal modifies the behaviour of Google Chrome using an inter-process communication channel called AutomationProxy, which is used for automatically testing the functions of the web browser.

With Chrome and the google suite:  All Your Base Are Belong to Google
