Thorium – a fork of Chromium web browser, named after radioactive element No. 90, and has the featureset of Google Chrome, with differences/patches/enhancements.

It includes Widevine, All Codecs, Chrome Plugins, as well as thinLTO, CFlag, LDFlag, LLVM Loop, and PGO compiler optimizations. It is built with SSE4, AVX, and AES, so it won’t launch on CPU’s below 2nd gen Core or AMD FX, but benefits from Advanced Vector EXtensions.

– Compiler optimizations include SSE4.2, AVX, AES, and modifications to CFLAGS, LDFLAGS, thinLTO flags, import_instr_limit flags, and PGO, as well as other compiler flags.
– LLVM LOOP optimizations as -mllvm flags
– UI Changes and Patches for Linux and Windows that fix bugs, enhance useability, and strengthen privacy/security.
