Chromium on linux

I've been following the development of chrome/chromium for several months now, with more and more dismay, as it is available only for Windows.
Then finally, a couple of days ago, I saw that it was now available for fedora in a beta version, and installed it.
This is my first breadbox post with it --- I'm putting it through all the things I use firefox for, seeing how it holds up. So far, so good: very good, in fact: its rendering of web pages seems fine, and it is much much faster than firefox.

Of course, it doesn't yet have all the extensions available that firefox does. Then again, neither does the beta version of firefox which fedora is encouraging me to use.

Yours, shinily,
