The Chromium PBI is a work in progress right now. The reason it is empty 
on PBIDIR is because I uploaded the PBI as soon as the legal issues were 
worked out. Unfortunately, the PBI was a newer version that was missing 
a bunch of libraries and such (the old one worked fine). So I removed 
the PBI in order to prevent the deluge of messages informing me that it 
is broken. You can also see some of this info on the forum post for 
chromium on the PBI request page. We are still working on Chromium to 
get it working before posting the "new" PBI again.
