It looks like the mobile team is considering Chromium, so we would go with
what they choose.

With regards to the beta status, keep in mind that Ubuntu included betas for
Firefox 3.0 in the Hardy Heron release because they knew that it was
advantageous to them, the betas were stable enough for initial use, and they
knew that the 3.0 release would be well-supported well throughout the 8.04
LTS life cycle.  Because the mobile team is going to include Chromium, we
can know that it will receive updates throughout the 10.04 LTS life cycle,
