How to use tor with chromium?

What’s the current best (least bad) way to torify chromium?

It used to be:

chromium --proxy-server="socks5://localhost:9050" --host-resolver-rules="MAP * ~NOTFOUND , EXCLUDE localhost"

Recently, chromium started displaying this:

You are using an unsupported command-line flag: -host-resolver-rules=MAP * ~NOTFOUND , EXCLUDE localhost.

How to work around this?

(I am aware that TPO does not recommend chromium. I use TBB for most things. But I have some use-cases for chromium and Tor.)

You can use privoxy with forward-socks5t [].
And add SafeSocks 1 in torrc [].
I also recommend using ungoogled-chromium, and check out this [Tor and Cloudflare] as well.

Have you tried the Brave Browser TOR Window? Given that Brave already has a good user base, it will be harder to fingerprint you via the browser.
