Here is how I handle this very same situation,

1. Iceweasel & Opera,

deb     http://mozilla.debian.net/ squeeze-backports iceweasel-release
deb     http://deb.opera.com/opera/ squeeze non-free

2. Chromium - just download the google-chrome stable .deb from
   google.com, it then automatically keeps up to date via
   /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome-list, which contains,

# You may comment out this entry, but any other modifications may be lost.
deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main

Good luck,
