Note corrected subject.
This WIKI is very helpful, thanks. I symlinked chromium's to google's and
seems OK (have a save just in case).
Two main differences:
Translations -- Google's gets in the way unless one sets the option to not
automatically offer translation. There are extensions including google's own
which might get translation into chromium. Will try.
Chromium comes up working much faster. Apparently google-chrome is searching
apt-cache as nauseum on start and is blocked at this point. Probably looking
for plugins or something else. Opera was my former choice but also takes
forever to come up. At least google-chrome shows itself before blocking.
