Sorry if I offended any one, my comment was about making chromium the
default browser, not directed to any ones comment, sorry again. I'm not
a native English speaker either, so I didn't realise how strong the
words I used.

My concern is that chromium on Linux, unlike on Windows, has serious RTL
and complex text layout issues, all have been reported for months now,
and not yet fixed, so replacing a browser with excellent language
support with a broken one is a step backwards and whoever is taking that
decision should consider that.

 Khaled
