Comments:       -When Chromium asks you about making it the default browser
just click don't ask again.

-dejavu-fonts-ttf.tcz is recommended. 

For Freedesktop users:
-xdg-utils.tcz is recommend. (This is needed to detect and launch preferred applications.)

-Remember chromium for linux is still in beta stage. So it has known
issues. For example there are reported flashplayer crashes.

-Also note that this is not Google Chrome. This is Chromium, the open
source project behind Google Chrome. Chrome is the official build of
Google. To see the differences between Chromium and Chrome:
http://code.google.com/p/chromium/wiki/ChromiumBrowserVsGoogleChrome

-One of the best features of Chromium is the extensions. Extensions
can be reached from the main menu. Note that some extensions are
not yet supported on linux.

-The other nice feature is the themes. You can download and install themes or
even create yourself. Options->Personal Stuff->Appearance click "Get themes"

-How to create themes:

This is built from source for i686.

This extension is PPI compatible.
