Can we have chromium as the default browser in the next release?

My issue is that the interface is ugly as sin. I installed it for about
5 minutes and ran screaming back to Firefox.

Ugly isn't the word I'd use, but bad is definitely applicable, as is excessively minimalist. It's UI text is mousetype and non-adjustable. It's close tab buttons cannot be moved off the tabs to make accidental tab closure less likely. And FWIW, like all Webkit browsers, and Opera, and the latest IE versions, but unlike most older browsers, and unlike all Gecko browsers, it's incapable of rendering web page objects life size except by accident (only on displays with an actual physical DPI of 96[1]).
