When you have chrome or chromium installed, you might find out the
binary name with

$ ls /usr/bin /usr/local/bin | grep -F chrom

(do not use "chrome" to also find chromium, on my system the command
results in only one line: "chromium-browser").

This should work regardless of how you installed, except for when you
have "installed" it by extracting the files to some uncommon location.
