ALL Chromium forks have non-free code. I have been actively looking for
*any* libre versions and have found none.

The closest thing we have is Iridium, and it still contains non-free

Chromium and it's derivatives even fail Ubuntu's license check:

remove non-free licensed code and even admits not to being able to block
all transmissions to Google.
