Bug Description

Chromium 38 (released 3 weeks ago) fixes at least $52k worth of security issues:
http://googlechromereleases.blogspot.de/2014/10/stable-channel-update.html

So 159 chromium security fixes (with 113 "relatively minor") are waiting for a MOTU to be packaged in Ubuntu.

Thanks to anyone taking care of that, and special thanks to Chad Miller for having done so repeatedly.
