At what point does it become less hassle to spin up a virtual machine with a distro recent-enough to run the latest Chrome?  Virtualization is a wedge that puts more space between your rocks and your hard places.

Just for kicks, I downloaded a Chromium OS image and had it running in VMware Player in a few minutes.  It wasn't as snappy as a native install, but it was usable.  I could have signed in to Google and picked up my bookmarks if I'd wanted.

Having said that, I don't have any experience with either KVM or kidnapping libraries from other distros.  I don't know which is harder and/or more fun (depends on what you're looking to get out of the experience), but it might be an option.
