You are right and I installed chrome from the google repository. Worked fine out of the box. I proceeded to move (1) Session Buddy, (2) bookmarks from chromium to chrome which also went fine. Prior to that I had installed the very same extensions I had been using on chromium to chrome.

One thing remains: I would also like to move my entire browsing history from chromium to chrome but am not sure which physical files I need to copy? There does not seem to be a function for exporting browsing history to another browser but I would love to be corrected.
