Turning On Sync in Raspbery pi Chromium

Sat Jul 24, 2021 4:36 am

Is there any way to downgrade the chromium browser of Raspberry Pi 4 to the version where sync was available for the OS? I have been researching about this for a few days. Hope this gets fixed soon :| :|

There is nothing to *FIX* it was a clampdown by Google on use of Google Chrome Browser APIs in Open Source Chromium Browser:

There is a bodge until Google close it down, I've not tested it.

Try getting Pi Apps and using the Downgrade Chromium app it has available. I've never tested it myself (I use Vivaldi, not Chromium) but it should work.

Go to https://github.com/Botspot/pi-apps to download Pi Apps.

Good Luck :D !
