Maybe we should obsolete all chromes on stable release? So long we are providing only 
unsecure versions and have users complaining about extensions that warn about old version. 
Seriously, if we can't keep it up-to-date we should not release it. Browsers are most used 
software nowdays and we are failing to update most popular ones :(. Maybe we should lower 
the count to maintain? Or maybe we should lower system deps and use included libraries to 
make updating of those packages easier?
