    Anything invasive of privacy in chrome is usually not included or can be circumvented in chromium. I used chromium snapshots for a couple of years. Every extension for chrome i ried worked just fine in chromium.

    You can get the snap shots here:

    Edit: chromium is the open source browser chrome is based on. Anything sneaky eventually someone sniffs it out since they have the source code.

    I found this for you:
    Google
    You may not know it but Google tracks your location history unless you disable it yourself. It gathers this data from your usage of Google Maps. You can disable this, and even manually delete certain places from your location history. Here's how.

    1. Go to this Google settings page.
    2. Click the Pause button in the "Places you've been" tile on the right. To delete individual entries from location history, click Manage history.
    3. You can pick any date from the calendar on the left > click Delete all history from this day. If you don't want any of your location history tracked, just click Delete all history.

    This explains the privacy settings in chromium

    https://support.google.com/chrome/an...s_privacy&rd=1

    Plus nyou don't have to use a snapshot. One of these installers may be easier to set up:
    Download latest stable Chromium binaries (64-bit and 32-bit)
