What is removed:

* Chrome Sync
First, Google doesn't allow Chrome Sync to be used by third-party browser.
Second, Google Sync sends your full history, bookmarks and passwords to servers which is totally not cool.

* Data Saver
Google doesn't allow to use their platform.
I'm working on a Turbo mode, but I'm not sure when it'll go out.

Advanced users:
If you want to open links with an external application, you can long-press on the link, or change the default setting in Settings, Accessibility.

To add a new search engine, go to your favorite search engine, and do a couple of searches, and then go to Settings, Search Engine.

Comments:

After getting tired of Firefox for Android being so slow, I tried many different browsers, all browsers had one thing in common, either they were too heavy or lacked features or they were not trustable / used to steal data. After searching and trying a lot of browsers, I came across this Chromium based browser. It's made a by a Google's Chromium developer / contributor - more details mentioned in the XDA Forum post. This browser has everything one can want, from build-in ad blocker, to disabling of crappy AMP sites to night mode to high speed with no lag - infact the developer claims it's faster than Chrome on Android. It's a must try / use and I recommend it to every Android user here.
