In light of all the bugs with Chromium and the never-ending debate about Firefox versus Chromium, why not make the switch for 13.04? There are a couple settings that we could make default that while perhaps making it slightly less secure might improve the user experience, e.g. whitelisting Flash, JavaScript, and other plugins, as well as cookies globally. Thoughts?

I just looked through the raw mbox of the list which goes back to 2012 and the last message on the only thread (besides this one) doesn't really come to any conclusion whatsoever [1] and certainly no mention of unstable and lacking features. In what way do you feel it is is unstable and lacking features? 

Also re: xombrero, if you read my original message [2] you'll find that I mention they're one in the same, only renamed.
