    That looks promising though it's Chrome and not Chromium. This could have changed but it used to be the case that Chrome sent a lot of information back to Google but Chromium did not. I've noticed that there's a "Automatically send usage statistics and crash reports to Google" checkbox in Chrome settings now, though, so maybe this has changed.
    Also, Chrome is based on Chromium, not the other way around. So, if you want the most bleeding-edge, they would be in the Chromium Nightly builds, not the Chrome..

    Chromium is Google's testing browser. Open source testing and closed source release. That way they can depend on the community to come out with new features, and then use the code for the next Chrome release.

    Ack, Tobias has removed Chromium from his PPA. Probably just as well, it would better to get the "official" PPA back...

    Yes, his ppa was not intended for anyone else but himself -- he clearly stated this (it wasn't even "pure" upstream source, he had made his own modifications), but people are desperate (like me!) for a working ppa. Of course, I solved the issue by reuniting with firefox (after being impressed so much by firefox mobile).

    I just use official google chrome, it saves a lot of trouble since google has its own repo that's always up to date, and you get the pdf reader, pepper flash, codecs.

    You can disable stuff like "Automatically send usage statistics and crash reports to Google" from the chrome settings. I see little reason to use chromium unless you are truly paranoid

    I've heard chromium is a pain in the *** to build, so you guys may be waiting a while for a reliable ppa.

    Chromium being out of date in Quantal has nothing to do with developers being lazy. It is a difficult package to keep building.
