Chromium support dropped for BunsenLabs Hydrogen & Deuterium

security support for chromium in the oldstable release (jessie), Debian 8, is now discontinued

Any BunsenLabs Hydrogen/Deuterium users who have chromium set as x-www-browser should run these commands as soon as possible:

sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade
sudo apt install firefox-esr chromium-

This should switch x-www-browser to firefox-esr automagically wink

Well drat!
Fx is my main browser, but I keep Chr. around for when I need a "vanilla" browser with nothing disabled (in a firejail though). Does this mean I have to install Google-chrome again? sad

Debian's official advice is to switch to stretch, that release has several other important security-related enhancements anyway.

For BunsenLabs, you can now have any browser you like, as long as it's firefox-esr.

Or Chrome hmm
