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

My reasons being

1. Faster
2. Better support for HTML5 and CSS3
3. Excellent browser rendering capabilities
4. Appstore is as good as firefox's and getting better

The only issue I have is it creates multiple process

One point that comes to mind where I would strongly dislike Firefox is
they are dead set on how "invalid SSL certificates" are handled.

With Chromium, Safari, Internet Explorer, etc, if you visit a website
with an "invalid security certificate"  the bypass is 1 click. No
hassle. the user is presented with a clear message on what they are
doing. If they are too dumb to read a message on the screen and act on
it, then sorry the rest of the users shouldn't suffer due to this.

But in Firefox I think I counted FOUR clicks mandatory to bypass
"invalid certificate"  messages. This in my eyes is unacceptable. And
it's not an error they are dead set on making "invalid certificate"
messages be as annoying as possible.

I just checked, it is 3 clicks. You can try it here (a sample invalid

I would agree that one click is too few. I think two clicks might be better.
