You need to work with all *popular* browsers. That's IE, Chrome
stable, Firefox stable and iOS Safari, perhaps Opera. Look at your
website's analytics and see what people are using to view your site
and test with those. *Chromium* has never been popular and hopefully
never will.

The last time I even touched Chromium was when it was the default
browser in Lubuntu. Fortunately the Lubuntu folks went back to
Firefox. ;-)
