    I gave up on Google's browser long ago because of stuff like this. Firefox has numerous faults but it's still the best out there right now.

    Chromium or Google Chrome? They are two separate products, and it would be helpful to know.

    Huh ??? I'm using Fedora 19 (64 bit) and Firefox, Opera, and Chrome all work great. I mostly use Opera but Firefox also runs great on F19. Did you try running strace or running it under gdb to get some info as to why it balks.

    P.S. I presume you built chromium from source ? Did you have any issues during the build ?

    chrome has been available under linux for a very long time. Chromium (the browser) can be built to run on Linux.

    I always thought fedora chromium was a fancy name for a tinfoil hat. Who Gnu?
