[Launchpad-users] Chromium browser now translatable in Launchpad

Hi :)

I just thought we were having a humourous & friendly chat.  It is good when 
people try something for the first time and get all excited about it.  I think 
it is great to keep trying new things and explore our options.  Something really 
great about linux-land is the freedon OF choice.  The defaults are usually fine 
in linux-land but it's great to explore.  Something that used to upset me about 
Windows was that the defaults are usually a nightmare AND there is a distinct 
lack of choice.  

Hooorah for linux and all the people in our community.  It is through arguments 
and discussion that we arrive at excellence.

Many thanks to all and regards from
Tom :)
