Chromium OS on Raspberry Pi 4 Installation and Working

In this segment we are going to show you how toInstall Chromium OS on Raspberry Pi 4″

What is Chromium OS ?

Chromium OS is a free and open-source operating system designed for running web applications and browsing the World Wide Web. It is the development version of Chrome OS, a Linux distribution made by Google.

Like Chrome OS, Chromium OS is based on the Linux kernel, but its principal user interface is the Chromium web browser rather than the Google Chrome browser. Chromium also includes the Portage package manager, which was originally developed for Gentoo Linux. Because Chromium OS and Chrome OS use a web browser engine for the user interface, they are oriented toward web applications rather than desktop applications or mobile apps.

Google first published the Chromium OS source code in late 2009.

Note : This release is of a test build, which is by design very insecure (for any production environment), as quoted from Viper:
You must never log in to them with credentials you care about.
It will automatically start ssh with root access via well known credentials.”
