Some of our users wanted Chrome instead of Firefox so we installed
Chromium from EPEL for them. Over the time, we had several problems where
a build didn't work and also updates were not in time. We also had
problems where some people were able to run chromium while others were
unable to launch it with their profile, even on the same host.

We solved the issue by removing chromium completely and told our users
that Firefox has to be used :-)
