    Why "fix" what ain't broken. Oh well, nothing a quick
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install firefox
    won't fix.

    No this command can't fix it 100% this time.

    I would go with Firefox as default browser.

    If user-base preference dictates Chromium over Firefox then okay, fair do's.
    If it's a dev decision based on 'their' preference, or 'their' convenience then there may be implications with the existing/remaining FF devotees/faithful.

    rrnbtter likely to replace Chromium with Firefox

    Greetings,
    For me it will be Firefox. If I want something trimmer I use Midori. I'm very pleased with these two programs.

    I personally use Chromium. But Firefox should stay default, because my experience tells me that it's more familiar to new users.
