I have decided to finally replace the closed source and privately owned Google Chrome with the open-source Chromium on my Mac OSX 10.9.2 (Mavericks).

I have read the differences between both here:

And the article suggests that in Chromium, unlike Chrome, not always the Sandbox feature is enabled (and to open "about:sandbox" in the browser to confirm". Well when I open it in Chromium I just get the default "not found" page.

Does that mean Chromium does not have sandbox protection on Mac OSX?
