feat. to remember passwords for http and to disable settings encryption -> true portablity

Hi

First - I want to say thank You for Your effort to build this great Chrome flavor (fast, less resource hungry than Google Chrome, with great built-in translation plugin)

I have two small feature request

1) to add switches that disables Chrome settings encryption (it use machine-id) so this will make this version of Chrome true portable, because (with settings encryption) when You move Your profile into different machine, passwords, some settings are lost.

Different Chrome build with this feature:
https://github.com/Eloston/ungoogled-ch ... s/flags.md

--disable-encryption (Windows only, not in chrome://flags) - Disable encryption of cookies, passwords, and settings which uses a generated machine-specific encryption key. This is used to enable portable user data directories.
--disable-machine-id (Windows only, not in chrome://flags) - Disables use of a generated machine-specific ID to lock the user data directory to that machine. This is used to enable portable user data directories.

2) An ability (enabled by checkbox in options) to "remember" login/password for non-SSL (http) sites and for SSL (https) sities with self-signed certificate (many routers/switches/modems use that) - I'm using many devices that using plain http or self-signed certificate.
Firefox has ability to remember passwords and some different chrome flavors too (like Advanced Chrome)
