Consider switching from Firefox to Chrome

The only reason we don't have Chrome/Chromium? on the clusters through a Debian package, despite repeated requests from the community, is it updates way too fast.

That may be less true of Chrome than Firefox now.

I'm not convinced we want to switch the default browser (yet), but chromium-browser has been added as of extra-software 1.4, and is there for all releases we care about (e.g. everything except Hardy).

1.4 has been in production for a while.
