Not my problem too. I agree, in fact, just wanted to make a point. Not
really such a big deal anyways.

do they suffer from a freedom issue then? because if they did like us,
they would at least filter it for prevention. Idk their criteria nor
Debian's Chromium (just that they apply like thousands of patches to
it), so I will ask them for details about how did they handle it (I was
reading some issues in their issue tracker, but they didn't have much info).

P.S: I'm cloning chromium from git, to explore its source. It's heavy as
hell!!! (16GB)
