Unlike partially proprietary Chrome, Chromium is free software,
so it deserves to be added to browse-url.el.

I agree that we should not search for the executable "chrome"
which is not free software.  So below is a new patch
that supports only free software version "Chromium".

I propose to add it independently of xdg-open for systems
that have Chromium but not xdg-open.
