Porting Tor Browser (based on Firefox) is probably one of the best moves that
could be done given how privacy-orientated it is above any other browser. It's a
requisite for having proper anonymous web browisng on Genode.

Although it's not a security matter, Chromium doesn't exactly have a good
history when it comes to keeping the code base free. On a development level, it
just seems to be code meant to be turned in to Chrome, not an intentional
browser by itself like Firefox.
