Support Google Chrome/Chromium browsers in

The attached patch is against Python 2.7, but it should be applied cleanly to Python 3+.

The patch works fine on my box with Chromium 16 under Archlinux.

However, I think it might not work under Ubuntu or Debian, since the program is named "chromium-browser" on these distros, and it is missing from the list of tested browser. I am setting up an Ubuntu box to test and confirm this.

I updated the patch. Thank you for reviewing!

The new patch works under Ubuntu but not not under Archlinux anymore (where the program is named "chromium").
Here is a patch that works with python 3.3 under both distributions.

I'm fine with that version.

Here is a patch against the 3.3 documentation, mentionning the new supported browser types.
