  • chromium-legacy

    Latest Chromium (‚ČíChrome Canary/Stable) for Mac OS X 10.7+

    https://github.com/blueboxd/chromium-legacy

    Then today, the same thing happened to Supermium, an equivalent project for Windows which supports back to Windows XP. To my knowledge, the developers of Chromium Legacy and Supermium are wholly unaffiliated.

    https://github.com/win32ss/supermium

    Does anyone happen to know what the heck is going on? It's a little scary and makes me not want to trust Github. I don't see anything in Github's repository of DMCA notices[1], and I'm having trouble imagining grounds on which such a takedown could happen.
