Installing binary packages from unstable or testing onto a stable release
is a BAD move.  Never do this.

If you feel that you absolutely positively HAVE to have a higher-numbered
version of a web browser than what is available in Debian, just use
upstream's binaries.  Download an appropriate upstream chromium binary
release tarball and unpack it in /opt/chromium or whatever upstream
suggests, and run it from there.
