Chromium ARM

UPDATE 1: A USER CALLED HUEY REPORTED 404 ERRORS DURING INSTALLATION. I HAVE UPDATED SCRIPT TO FIX 404 ERRORS. THANKS HUEY FOR YOUR FEEDBACK!

UPDATE 2: UPDATED TO INSTALL CHROMIUM 55, NOT 53

UPDATE 3: FOR BETTER VIDEO PLAYBACK, USE THE CHROMIUM IN RASPBERRY PI REPOSITORIES

UPDATE 4: FIXED YET ANOTHER 404 ERROR.

UPDATE 5: MADE SURE THAT ALL CHROMIUM FILES ARE UP TO DATE.

UPDATE 6: 

Hello. Here is an installer that installs latest Chromium onto ARMv7 Linux

Create a new file called install-chromium-arm.sh and put the following into it:

# This script installs latest Chromium onto ARM Linux
