Well Chrome seems to improve with each new version...also, there have been flash updates too in newer versions, so those running Chromium get left behind....Chrome is very prompt about bringing you the latest stable release and each time there is any interim updates (new version in same series) you also get them like immediately...With Chromium, you are dependent on Canonical and they really fall off the boat on the Chromium updates and simple fixes and refinements on the types of items i mentioned in my previous post...

Ubuntu is my favorite distro and that's probably why i get a bit annoyed about things like this because it doesn't make the best impression to newer users coming over to us...
