As I note in the README, for versions greather than 23.x.x.x they
restricted or removed support for unkeyed requests, so unless you have
set up your API keys some of the functionality of Chromium (e.g. “Sign
into Chromium …”) may stop working altogether

I never believed it necessary to hardcode API keys in the port since
CRUX is not a binary distribution and this can be done without problems
in runtime by environment variables.
The easiest way is to create your own API keys following the notes in
the README and add them for example to your ~/.bashrc
$ cat >> ~/.bashrc << __EOF__
In any case, today I will update the port again. ATM I'm building
Chromium 52.0.2743.82 which includes 48 security fixes.
