    If you decide to run Canary, I strongly suggest you don't depend on it for anything important, like placing an online order, doing electronic money transfers, or whatever. It's likely to put you in the jackpot -- Murphy's Law, and all that stuff...

    Personally, I maintain an official PPA install of Chromium too, for use during those times when you just can't take any chances of your browser going janky on you in the middle of a session.

    Thanks for the input but I'm one of those boring KISS types who uses Chrome stable I was just curious because I hadn't heard of Chromium Canary. I knew of Chrome Canary (for Windows).
    Shortened urls: See point #11 here. And clicking on them could be risky.

    I could upgrade it when I'm bored; which is also at least two times a day. LoL!
    I use Canary to feed my upgrade-addiction so the rest of stuff is less endangered...

    Different is the name of the game...
    I (knock-knock-knock-on-the wood) did not have any major issues with Canary... Even though I have it heavily burdened with almost all switches that could be turned on for speed and... I can honestly say I like it... But, yes, most of the time I use IRON... Mainly because I see a lot of „collision ahead“ in X-logs... Even though, collision does not happen at the end...

    And webaccounts-chromium-extension depends on webaccounts-extension-common.

    I have removed these three packages and deleted the extensions from chromium (menu tools / extensions).
    Now the nagging has stopped.

    @vasa1: I have only installed Xubuntu, which of course uses XFCE. But as you see, the unity nagware was installed as part of Chromium, not as part of unity.


    If I wanted commercial popups, I'd buy a windows box from the high street. Eugh!
    Thanks for your help folks. Marking the thread as solved.
    Suddenly, after installing the latest round up updates to Kubuntu 13.04, Chromium is nagging me with this same message, and when I click "install plug-in" it leads to a page about "unity-chromium-extension" version 2.4.4. I currently have version 2.4.6 installed (it was one of the updates installed this morning). Even if I remove all three packages in the above quote, I am still nagged with this same "Unity WebApps plugin" message. I know this thread is marked "Solved" but evidently the problem is not solved. So how can I get rid of this annoying message? It makes using Chromium very distracting.

    Re: Chromium nags me to install Unity Webapps.

    Google Chrome isn't modified by Canonical the way Chromium is. So my guess is that users of Chrome (on any DE) won't experience any side-effects other than lack of "integration" with this whole web apps thing.

    Edit: I guess the same thing happens with Firefox as well.
    When I attempted using Chrome (DE gnome session fall back) any 'bug' anyplace was associated with Chrome in that apport stated to remove a non-supported app. I then installed Chromium and all future bugs were handled as expected
