The Chromium Projects


image What Is This? is a virtual meeting place where Chromium developers can foster community and coordinate work. With so much geographic and organizational diversity in our team, making it easy to have “hallway conversations” in a public online forum like helps keep everyone in the loop.

This workspace is meant for people developing Chromium; it is not a user support forum.

image No Confidential Discussions Please

This is considered a PUBLIC system -- even private messages and groups.

No confidential information (Google or other) should be posted. Ever.

Official information

Official information needs to go on public mailing lists and in public bugs.

Don't believe you've informed everyone because you've said something in a Slack channel.

image Yay! How do I join?

Example channels:

Any Slack member can create channels when they need one. There are many.

image Good Behavior Required!

As with all Chromium venues, the Chromium Code of Conduct applies here.

image Tips and Tricks

There are many pages listing Tips and Tricks for Slack. These are a couple selected to make the transition from earlier systems smoother.

Read like IRC?

Enable "All unread" in settings and read all channels amalgamated.

Quieter slack

Mute channels by clicking on the channel name. A muted channel will still notify you if someone triggers an alert by using your name

Remind me

/remind me in 20 minutes to eat lunch

/remind #release at 11:45 May 20, 2020 Release Chromium 80

Right click a post and select "remind me in ..." to get reminded about that post later


If you can, probably best to ask questions on #slack-help. If you can't log in to Slack at all, contact
